And I'm back with my second card today for Camp Create - this time for Day 2 - Magnificent Masking.

I created this one-layer card by first stamping and masking the palm tree.  I then masked off the top and bottom of the ink-blended panel.  Once that was complete, I used some torn paper as a mask for the sand.  The reverse of that mask was used for the sea, along with another straight piece of paper.  Finally I sponged in the sky.  All the inks I used for the sponging were Distress Oxide inks and the paper is Bristol Smooth.

Once I was finished, I removed all the masks, colored the palm tree and used a Sharpie paint pen to add the waves and foam.  To give the tree something to "rest" on, I stamped the sentiment right underneath.  The birds are from the Party Like a Pirate set.

I'm also adding this to the AAA Cards Masking challenge.  Thanks for visiting.

Stamps:  Penguins in Paradise, Party Like a Pirate (MFT)
Ink:  Intense Black, Versafine Onyx Black, Antique Linen, Broken China, Salty Ocean Distress Oxides
