Inspired by Nature - Reverse Masking

This is one of the cards was made at a number of Stampin' Up! workshops during February and March. I love this card and cased it off someone from Splitcoaststampers but cannot remember who it was.

Details about the card: I made a template for the Reverse Masking Technique as well as for the sponging and paper piercing. That way we created an assembly line and making the square grass image went a lot quicker. Also, the flower was inked up by using markers only.

Dimensions in inches:

Naturals White card base - 4 1/4 x 11
Chocolate Chip - 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
Bravo Burgundy - 4 x 5 1/4
Naturals White - 3 3/4 x 5

Template - 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 (I used my Scorpal to score a 3/4" line down each side, then used my hobby blade and ruler to cut the square out.)

I always love reverse-masked cards and this one is gorgeous!! Love the colors you used and the paper piercing around the sponged area is the perfect touch!!
