Stencil Masking

 My Favorite Things has some "Smart Masks", which can be used with stencils or stamps to give a border all around and a natural area to stamp a sentiment.  I ordered a High Low Strip masking stencil and a fun set of sentiment stamps that will fit with it, and made 3 cards today.

supplies: white cardstock, MFT Flower Fusion layering stencils, altenew mini ink cubes from Lapis Lazuli, Enchanted Garden, and Sweet Dreams collections, and Lime, MFT Smart Mask High Low StripEssential Messages 

Then I shifted the mask upward, chose a Greetery stencil set, and inked this card in warm colors.

supplies: white and bright pink cardstock, The Greetery Petal Pushers stencils, teeny bikini, melon, sunshine, firefly, and volcano lake inks, MFT High Low Strip masking stencilEssential Messages, enamel dots

And 1 more, just cause it's fun to play with colors!

supplies: white and purple cardstock, The Greetery Petal Pushers layering stencils, wilted violet,ripe persimmon, mustard seed, and mowed lawn distress inks, MFT Smart Mask High Low Strip, Essential Messages, enamel dots

These masking stencils come in 4 varieties, each in either a vertical or a horizontal perspective, and I think they're a great addition to our layering stencils and even stamps to make a card a little more interesting, yet still 1 layer!

It's an Anything Goes week at the Simon Wednesday challenge, so I'll be entering these this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
