Papertrey August Blog Hop, CFC #67, Moxie Fab World, CASE Study #105

August 25, 2012

Today, I have a card linking up to several challenges. Firstly, the BIG blog hop from Papertrey Ink for August Blog Hop Challenge! We were given this inspiration photo from Nichole Heady and I wanted to try some masking for a DIY herringbone pattern.

I CASEd Nicki’s winning card from CASE Study for the current CASE Study #105 challenge. For my sentiment, I didn’t want to cover up the background, and I was too chicken to stamp directly on it, so I cut a small banner with a simple “happy birthday” sentiment, perfect for CAS-ual Friday #67! To give it a little more movement, I decided to offset the sentiment to the side rather than in the middle for Moxie Fab’s Asymmetry Challenge.

I have included a small photo tutorial on how I did the masking for the herringbone pattern. I used some washi tape, cut to the desired width and masked away.

    Wow! Love your herringbone technique. I don’t quite get how you did the colors after the masking – was this direct color to paper?

    • pamela Says:

      After masking, it was direct color to paper using a sponge. The masking acted as a guide for me, but since the sponge I used was quite big, I used some scrap paper to mask the other areas.
