I know, I know, you ask why I haven't done it before, because it is simple enough. But I had no design in mind that would utilize the technique.
Anyway, I scraplifted her "sketch" and using the same technique, came up with a set of Thank You cards that my daughter had asked me to make so she could send to family after her birthday. (I love the fact that I didn't have to nag her to send them)

So, the card base is plain old white card stock, and the masked layer is various leftover pieces of cream-colored cardstock. I applied the two smaller clings to the left side of my card and distressed that side with tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. After peeling off the clings, I stamped a tiny butterfly on SU Kaleidescope Ink pad in Wild Berry over the inked area. The sentiment is from my very first set of SU stamps, bought before the "turn of the century". (wow, that sounds like I'm old...wait, I AM old!") LOL
The inside is left blank for my daughter to write in her personal message to all who gave her gifts for her sweet 16th birthday.
So now you've seen the uncrafting part of my craft room and learned that I am behind the times when it comes to techniques. No worries, I am quickly catching up. There are so many blogs with inspiration projects, videos with tutorials, and new products coming out every day that I MUST keep changing and learning or else I may just get left behind, stuck in a tar pit like...well, I'm not THAT OLD!!!
