Close-up of sentiment. The sentiment does not fade into the background because the stripes are not quite as dark as they appear here - same as the objects reflected in this mirror may be closer than they appear.
Masking and using Versamark to ink up open surfaces. I used think Washi tape to create narrow separations on this card. I covered the sentiment panel entirely. I really don't have this technique down and I think I might do something like this on a much smaller scale, rather than an entire card. The dark color triangles are not black but a DEEP dark green. The sentiment is stamped directly onto the note card front.
I hope you enjoyed these examples of two of the ideas on Days 5 and 6.
