By The Sea in a Teacup

It's a super eventful week with the Stampendous Design Team this week, so keep coming back almost daily here on my blog to see what's going on with the following blog hops...

Here's my sea worthy project for today. It's an adventure worth trying when you're the size of a teacup boarder. Amanda, Muzzy, and Mudpie are sailing the big wide sea in makeshift sailboats just for them. How fun is this trio! 
When I made this card I had just purchased a roll of airbrush low-tack frisket. I was so excited to try it because of two distinct reasons, I wanted precision masking and I love to use an exacto knife with a fresh pointed blade. Does that make me uber artsy? lol

I used frisket quite a few times when I was an intern in high school and then again the same method with Amber Acetate Film in college... and a fresh utility knife blade. Yep, I'm dopey about cutting things with the ease of a super sharp tipped blade. I did a quick search of my photo folder and didn't find any step out photos on the process, so hopefully I can make one up the next time I'm masking an image.
