FM123 Magical Masking In Colors

Morning Everyone!  Today, Amanda is host at the Friday Mashup.  She has us trying clear-block stamping and/or color blocking.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with "Clear Block Stamping".
  2. Create a project using "Color Blocking".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project with "Color Blocking using your Clear Blocks".
I've done clear-block stamping.  I've done color-blocking with patterned and solid papers.  I don't think I've combined both.  In fact, it kinda freaked me out a little bit.  If you've seen some color blocking with card stock, it is a pretty clean technique, while clear-block stamping is, well, not.  The thought of combining the two just about sent me over the edge.  :)

I went out to the Splitcoaststampers gallery for some inspiration, and came across the tutorial for Magical Masking Tape, and I just wanted to try it!  So, forgive me, Amanda, for skipping right over the clear-block option.  :O

Here's my first shot at it.  Mmmmm, yummy In Colors!  Next time I think I'll use a little bit lighter colors.

Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Four You; Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White; Ink: Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Black Stazon; Accessories: Painter's tape.

Thanks for stopping by!
