I've actually used this technique quite a number of times already but I think it's even more fun when using it on a die cut pattern paper. I know that die-cut pattern paper can be very challenging to work with and we try not to cover the gorgeous design on it. Therefore, actual layering on top of it would not be a very good choice.
Therefore, instead of layering another huge piece of pattern paper on top of it, I've used the edges of a scrap as template and start masking using distress ink, all around the edges of the die-cut pattern paper. This would create an instant frame/ layer to your page. Fast and easy!
