Speedy TV Tutorial Time Challenge - Masked Borders

Today's Tutorial Time challenge on Speedy TV shows how you can get some depth on a one- or two-layer card.  It's called Masked Borders, and here's a link to Barbie Dobson's tutorial.   My card is a relatively clean-and-simple Christmas card.


After doing all my stamping and coloring, I stippled some green ink on the bottom section to get some more texture.  If you've never done this technique, we'd love for you to give it a try.  Be sure to link up your card at the end of the challenge post on Speedy TV.  You might win a free stamp set.

Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers - New Pines, Joyous Season
Paper:  Mark's Finest Papers - Super Green, Snow Storm Smooth
Ink:  Memento Cottage Ivy, Rich Cocoa
Accessories:  Copic markers, Brads, Stipple brush, EK Tools Journaling pen, Post-It notes for masking
