Mediterranean Delight


I love this card. I received it after the ON Stage in Orlando, last year from a fellow demonstrator. Carolyn is part of my “greater” team (not sure where we connect, as we all stem from the same Upline, somewhere along the line.

I feel like I need to go somewhere where there’s wine, cheese, beautiful brick roads, lovely bistros… I could go on.

This card is made using the masking technique. I stamped the woman first, in the middle of the Whisper White card stock. I created a mask of her, by stamping the same image onto Post-it Removable label tape (Amazon). You need to cut the mask out, right on the lines, so that you don’t have any blank areas around her later. Once you have her cut out, place her exactly on top of the original stamp, then stamp the background right over her. I used the Mediterranean Moments Stamp set for the background. It’s a shame this set is retiring. I love it!!

When you remove the mask, it looks as if you magically stamped the background all around her. I used an aqua painter and the same colour of ink, as the card base to give her a little colour, then a very light water colour of the Soft Suede in the background for depth. I “winkified” her dress with Wink of Stella, for some pizzazz, while she was dancing on the Piazza.

I used the “friend” from the Waterfront Stamp set, because the font is fun!
