Masking Double Take

I found this cool US die cut shape in the Silhouette store & thought it would be fun to use it as a mask on one of my latest cards.  But... to get the look I was after, I had to do a masking double take.  Let me show you what I mean...

I started by masking the outer edges of the map, leaving the center open.  Then I took my entire sheet of Studio Calico state stamps & stamped onto patterned paper using navy ink.

To really make the map stand out, I placed a mask over the area that I had just stamped & sprayed silver Mister Huey ink over the entire piece.

I cut a wood frame out using my Silhouette as well.  (Did you know you can run the slim wood sheets through your die cutter?!?  It probably dulled my blade to pieces, but I just had to try it!  I've cut several things after the fact & they seem to still cut just fine.  Fingers crossed for future success.)  ;)  I didn't use a mat - just ran the wood straight through by itself with the highest blade setting.

And yes.  That is yet another wood veneer shape that I used on this project.  I told you that I couldn't quit!  The little heart was just what I needed to give the card more meaning.
