For Try It Thursday, I thought it might be fun to try masking. On this card, I took a piece of printer paper and cut it to 3 3/8" x 4 5/8", the same size of my Whisper White Cardstock. I then used my paper trimmer and cut a 2 3/8" x 3 5/8" rectangle out of the center (this makes a 1/2" border all the way around). This was my mask. I then used Ditto temporary adhesive to hold the mask down. I sponged Orchid Opulence ink onto the Whisper White layer and stamped my leaf image (but I stamped off once because the image was too strong). I them removed the mask and stamped my flower image in Rich Razzleberry ink.
At least, with this technique I didn't have the same problems as dealing with my possessed sewing machine :b So give this technique a try. You can get some really awesome effects.
