Masking with Shapes

Here's one of my 'practice assignments' for a (My Creative Classroom) online class I'm taking called Sponged Ink Backgrounds for Cards. This particular technique uses shapes as masks. I used 2 masks for this project. The first mask was made with a Nestabilities die; the second mask was made with a MS leaf punch. I really like the look of this technique! The only stamp used on this card is the solid flower from the Verve set called Love's Flower.
I highly recommend this MCC class instructed by the talented Kim Teasdale!
Supplies: Stamps - Verve's Love Flower; Paper - watercolor card base, SU! sage shadow; Ink - SU! sage shadow, soft sky, old olive, Versafine spanish moss; Accessories - sponge daubers, clear embossing powder, MS ribbon, PTI scallop border die; MS butterfly punch, buttons and a pearl.
