Masking with Die Cuts

Papertrey Ink is so awesome! I have learned so much from watching the their videos and this latest  was no exception:

It's fun to see a scribble come to life

I masked off popsicles and stars then watercolored and stamped some backgrounds

Stamped a popsicle in the masked area then gave it some sparkle

This glitter popsicle adds dimension and pops off the page

Stamped a popsicle in the masked area then gave it some sparkle. Since my background colors and my stamped colors matched I felt I need the sparkle to help the stamp stand out. Last a star embellishment for fun! 

This glitter popsicle also pops off the page and one more star embellishment.
Masking was so fun and I can't wait to add new dies to my collection so I can't try this some more!

God has truly Blessed America and I am so thankful for our country and all who keep us free. Wishing all a wonderful Independence Day!
