Earth Day ~ Masking & A Video

To celebrate earth day I made a One Layer Card (OLC).  Shocking, I know.  It's okay though.  I made a second card with extra dimension just to even things out.  ;)   It was fun thinking about the earth, and making the most of our resources.  As paper crafters we often recycle, re-use, and upcycle.  Our stamps, inks and tools can be used over and over again.  We tend to save and use every little scrap of paper.  Today we can celebrate that!

To make this card even better, I filmed a video for you.  I kept the camera rolling after I made the first card and caught my second card on film too.  If you are reading this post in your email, be sure to click on the post title above, "Earth Day",  to visit my blog and watch the video.

It is so much fun to create your own background with just a little ink. 

Don't you just love the little details on the bottom of my stepped up card?  I know I do.

Give this technique a try with a new color combo and see what you can come up with.  If you want to use River Rock, you better hurry.  The color has just retired and is only available While Supplies Last. 

Creative Blessings,
Heather North
