Pocket Silhouettes swap card

I am participating in a swap group with a few other Demonstrators. Twila and Becky have blogs and are in the swap group but I am not sure about the details of the other ladies. I will add them later if they have blogs. This was last months card submission, anything from the new Fall Winter Idea book & Catalog. I chose Pocket Silhouettes.

To get the green background, I used a technique called reverse masking. I took a piece of scrap copy paper and punched 4 square scallops from the new SU square scallop punch. I overlapped the corners so the scallops would be even in the middle. I sponged through the mask with Kiwi kiss ink. Then I stamped the images over it with Chocolate chip ink.

I just finished this month card- I’ll share that this week.

ETA:  I used a 4×4 pice of paper for the mask.  Any size scrap paper will do as long as you can punch 4 squares from the scallop square punch and overlap the corners when you are punching.

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Whisper white, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Kiwi kiss, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Square scallop punch, god brads, striped in color ribbon.

    Love how you used the punch and the technique. Could you please tell us the size of the paper you punched to create your mask? TFS!

    Hi Jill,Thanks for the great and simple card. I copied this for a swap that I'm in and simplified (economized) the ribbon a little. I also used black cs instead of choc chip. Still used choc chip ink though. What a great design!! (I totally gave you credit on my recipe label!!).Thanks for your great ideas and inspiration! Melanie
