Today I’m using the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks for my project, and I have step by step instructions for you!

Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks

This set of masks has six different patterns. There are three with flowers and butterflies that layer together, and three that have pretty background patterns. I used the one in the top left, the bottom center and the bottom right for today’s card.

Butterflies & Flowers Masks

Step One

First, I took a quarter sheet of Basic White Cardstock and secured it with masking tape to my work surface. Be sure to reduce the tackiness of the tape before putting it on your cardstock. I knew I would cut my panel and didn’t need the edges, so I didn’t worry about this.

Next, secure the stencil over your white cardstock. I used the larger set of flowers. You can see them in the very bottom right of the picture above. I used my blending brushes to gently add Pale Papaya ink to the two larger flowers and Flirty Flamingo to the two smaller ones. Because these are similar colors, I didn’t worry about covering up the larger flowers. I thought it was okay for the colors to blend a little. Remove the mask.

Step Two

I turned the mask around to line up the detailed flowers on the other end. It’s easiest to line this up by looking at the two smaller flowers. I secured this and used my Blending Brushes to add the same colors to the same flowers – Pale Papaya on the larger flowers and Flirty Flamingo on the smaller flowers. Again, I didn’t worry about overlapping color. Remove the mask.

Step Three

Using the other mask with flowers and leaves, I lined the leaves up with my flowers. Don’t look at the two cut out flowers. They are flowers for other projects. Just look through the mask and you’ll see where the leaves go. Since this is a totally different color, I did NOT want this color to blend, so I used a piece of scrap paper and bits of the tape to cover any areas that I thought I might accidently hit. I learned this by experience. You can see in my photo below that I hit my flower with green ink. I actually had to start over. Use your Blending Brushes to add Pear Pizzazz ink to the leaves. Remove mask.

The Finished Product

I cut out my flowers using a die from the Scalloped Contours Dies set. But I had so much fun with the masks that I decided to add the vines to a background piece. I used the vine stencil and Pear Pizzazz ink to add interest to the Pear Pizzazz panel. I also used the same stencil used for the leaves to add a flower to the inside of my card.
