Thinking of you always

Third one of the day (catching up is crazy but sharing is fun!)

For this card I am playing along with OTWC again (These colors are way too fun) and using the sketch from Simon Says Stamp. I just love a sketch challenge don't you?


and sketch
and card :)

I haven't used masking in a while and I thought this sketch was perfect for it!

I started by tracing my squares out in pencil. I masked off the main image square and stamped my flower (Large Flower, Hero Arts). I colored my flower in using scattered straw, worn lipstick, and a H20 pen.

For the background square I masked it off and stamped the polka dots (Fruit Salad, Oriental Trading) in Grass Chalk ink from Hero Arts.

I stamped my sentiment (All Occasion Messages, Hero Arts)  in jet black archival ink (Ranger). To make the squares pop I outlined them using a ruler and a black gel pen.

I added some stardust stickles (you know I have too lol) and green rhinestones to complete it.

One more share left then off to work with me!

  3. This really caught my eye.....masking is a technique that I like to do but takes time. Love this! Thanks for sharing this with OTWC!
