Make it Monday: Reverse Masking

I finished a card for this week's Make It Monday challenge a couple of days ago, but just realized that I'd better it posted since the new challenge will be up tomorrow! The challenge is reverse masking - essentially, using the negative space of the stamped image as a mask. Here is my card:

After cutting the mat stack 5 shape, I used the long banner from Banner Builder to create the lines. Then I masked with Post-It notes on the lines, sponged in the "shelf" with blue ink, and added images from Grunge Me with Fresh Snow ink. Next, I stamped the vases outlines and solids from Gracious Vases, and created a reverse mask for each vase shape. Then I masked and one by one applied patterns from Text Style, Polka Dot Basics and Geometrics backgrounds sets. I added fillers from Gracious Vases, Fancy Flourishes and Sending You, and the sentiment from Gracious Vases. I popped it all up and attached a loop of ribbon (Terracotta Tile and Summer Sunrise) and a button, and added some stitching and layered it all on the new Damask Designs paper, Spring Rain and Summer Sunrise cardstock.

Thanks for looking! :)
