I’ve got a quick tutorial for y’all today.  I’m sure many of you know how to do this – but since I had to dig out my brayer, I figured I might as well take photos and share it!  But first – Gina K had a NEW episode of StampTV!  You can find it {HERE}!  Again, she uses the Floral Frenzy Kit – and since she did, I did too!

Now this card was inspired by one I saw on SCS by Makiko Jones.   I decided to use some glossy cardstock because I accidentally picked up two packages last year at Recollections – I thought it was plain white that my Dad has asked for.  Ooops!  Anyway – I figured I’d better use it sometime!  So here’s a bit on how did the mask – I’m not sure that’s what this would actually be called, but that’s what I’m calling it!  Or I suppose it would be Reverse Masking….we’ll go with that!

Reverse Masking:

To start – I took a piece of cardstock (yes, yo yo yellow – cause let’s face it, I’m still using that first pack I bought when I started stamping 5 years ago….) and used a nestability to cut out a rectangle from the middle.

Then I taped the white glossy cardstock (glossy side down) on to the back of the yellow cut out.

Now you see the glossy side up through the yellow cardstock frame.

Then I ran the brayer over the kiwi kiss ink pad and onto to the glossy white cardstock.

And I am sorry this shot turned out so fuzzy – but here it is – all colored underneath!

And since this was a card we made at class – I brayered them all in advance.  And that’s how they look finished!

This is the finished card:
