I started by positioning a vintage cowboy rodeo image (from Graphics Fairy) and printing it on high quality white cardstock (I use Neenah Solar White).
I sized my image, so it would be completely covered by a sticky-note mask. I added a bit of temporary adhesive around the 'non-sticky" edges to help hold it down.
Next, I inked Hero Arts Flourish Pine with Versamark, stamped it on the card front, and clear embossed. Apparently, the last time I used the stamp it was with Red ink that I didn't get entirely cleaned off. Thankfully, for me, I'm working with Red on this card, so it won't affect the outcome.
I put the card in my spray box (a long cardboard box with the top cut off) and sprayed it with Oriental Poppy Glimmer Mist.
Once it had dried a bit, I removed the post-it note. The post-it note I used for this project was exceptionally thin, so I got a bit of ink bleed through. Thankfully, I like the effect and think it will work for this western-themed card.
I finished my using strong double sided tape to attach my image to the card base (you'll need a strong adhesive due to the curling from the mists). I added a Hero Arts sentiment stamped on a scrap of yellow misted cardstock and multiple wraps of black twine to finish my card.
I hope this tutorial gets you thinking about ways to play with your mists and masks.
