Make It Monday #250

Today, I have a card to share for Make It Monday #250: Masked Backgrounds.
I was inspired to make my card using one of my new PTI stencils.
 

I started by masking off a border on my card using post-it notes.
Then, I blended aqua mist, Hawaiian shores and harvest gold ink onto my panel.
I laid my stencil over top and masked off the parts I didn't want to stencil
with washi tape and applied some Wplus9 Ocean Drive ink over top.
I diecut the PTI Guiding Lights sailboat and stamped it in Hawaiian shores,
pure poppy and harvest gold.
 


I stamped my sentiments (from Wet Paint III, KIS: Father's Day
and KIS: Belated Birthday) in versafine onyx black/

Thanks for looking!
