Quick Tip Tuesday

Today I'm sharing another idea for FCCB's Quick Tip Tuesday.
Rather than tossing your extra Cricut cuts - you know, the ones that are smaller or larger than you wanted, or that you decided not to use afterall - you can use them as masks.
Here's a quick card I made using some extra flower cuts as masks to create the background mat.

I just used a make-up sponge and some ink, but you could use your Copic Airbrush or Mini Misters as well.

Did you notice the "Bug Hop" blinkie at the top of my blog?  Barb, at Bug Bites is sponsoring this hop.  There will be 20 blogs to visit and blog candy along the way. Also, a chance for a special prize for those of you who link up to her blog at the end.
If you're not traveling this holiday weekend, plan on joining us.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
