Technique Thursday #1 - Masking

I am back today with a new series called Technique Thursday. I'll try to make a new project and a new tutorial video every Thursday from now on. And this week I am starting of with some masking. And I am masking of part of my card front to make a diagonal line from one corner to the other. And I am using the lines on my grid mat to line the tape up so that I get an even and straight line across my card, it is very fast and easy to do.

This card i also part of the new monthly challenge together with Uniko Studio. We love to have all of you join us in this challenge and share your Uniko Studio creations with us. And if you join in on the fun there are some amazing prizes up for grabs this time. How about a £20 Gift Certificate to the Winner & a Guest Design Team spot on the blog for the next challenge? And also a Top Three Spotlight & £5 Gift Certificate.

For this challenge I made this really clean and simple one layer card and I used the chrysanthemum stamp and three colors of distress ink. I saw a sketch somewhere on Pinterest a while back that inspired me to do this card and I am really pleased with the outcome.

For the Challenge this month we are having a "Clean & Simple" theme and we are combining that with a fun colour pallet. And this months colour inspiration contains some fabulous colors that I really love. It feels a bit like autumn and the colors are nice and warm. I hope you feel as inspired and I do and I can't wait to see your take on these colors.
