Masked & Splashed

I've been working on my inking skills, and nothing tests them like a one-layer card! I was inspired some great challenges (see below).

The stamps are from CAS-ual Fridays. I used strips of paper as masks to create the stripes; I also used masking for the circle stamps. I punch a circle to create a mask for the filled-in circles. The sentiment is embossed with a ZING! powder. The blue ink is from Hampton Art; the coral chalk ink is from Quick Quotes. The darkish yellow is Mustard Seed distress ink from Ranger. I'm really pleased how this came out, and am especially pleased that I didn't get ink on the rest of the card!
