AAA #46 and HLS CAS Challenge

Masking can really make a card great and give it dimension but it's not always easy to do.  Cutting little masks and figuring out which image to stamp first takes a little forethought.  I practiced on scrap paper before finalizing this card for AAA - Maskerade and Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - Masking.


The flowers and vase are from W & W's Lola's Bouquet with hand drawn stems.  The flowers are colored with Zigs and the vase negative masked and stamped with a small print stamp from My Craft Spot (no longer in business).  A little background and shadow, some splatters and a sentiment from PB finish it off.

So glad you stopped by.

  8. Love it! So vibrant. I really like the spatters--I rarely do them on my cards because I usually spatter the table more than anything else when I try! LOL
