On yesterday's card used Distress Ink (including the new Abandoned Coral). So while I had those out I decided to create a different card. I die cut a circular piece from masking tape and put it where the greeting was going to go. That way as I created the background I could avoid getting ink in that area. Once I removed the masking paper I could stamp the greeting where I wanted it. I liked how easily this came together so you will see more cards with inked/stenciled backgrounds on my blog soon.
