I took my colors mostly from this Junkitz card stock that became the base mat of my card front:
I made my paper masks out of this stuff:
So, like I said, if you are an experienced masker, this card would have been a no-biggie to make, but for me, it was all I could handle at my current ability. I have gotten better the more I've masked, but I don't too very often because there's just too many arty techniques to do!
Before I forget, I want to mention these things: first, if you are wanting to try your hand at this, I would strongly suggest finding a card to CASE - that way you have a reference photo at all times. I used one
Caryn Davies. I found it HERE in the samples for the AE stamp set. Having a reference photo helps you see which objects are in front and which are behind where they overlap. Caryn layered her van, but I got the wild hair to see if I could layer the masking, lol. What I additionally benefitted from was the placement of her trees and the overall proportions, as well as a general design. So, while our two cards look and are different, they are also very similar, and I could never have made mine as it turned out without the help of hers. Thank you, Caryn!
Hope your Hump Day went well. Thanks for visiting and leaving me a hollah. Cya next time. xoxo
