Make It Monday, #250

Just a quick post for Make It Monday.  Laurie Willison has a video on masked backgrounds and because I sometimes use this technique, I had to play along.
I taped off the edges and inked the background with Distress Inks.  Wild Honey DI was used to stamp the PTI Harvest Berries die cut, with a little water added to color in more of the leaves.  PTI's Keep It Simple sentiment is stamped in Altenew Dusk.  QACAS as Darnell would say - although I do have blue fingers now.

Glad you dropped by.

This is beautiful! Love the gold with the blue. Very elegant!

Darnell said...

Oh, dear, does that make it a blue-fingered QACAS? Sounds like one of those funny bird names, doesn't it?! Nothing funny about your card though, Bobby, it's a masked masterpiece!! I hope you're enjoying the long weekend! Hugs, Darnell

Bobby this is wonderful, your background is perfectly sponged and what a great idea to top it with the ginko stem!

Hey Bobby! Love the colors you chose for this...when I use yellow I always tend to think pastels. But bold blue, now that's saying something!! Hope you're enjoying the weekend ­čÖé
