It's Sunday and I haven't entered the challenge at Less Is More yet! So here is my entry into Chrissie and Jen's theme challenge this week, which is
MASKING or STENCILLING
Funnily enough, I was showing on of my team, Serena, how to use the masking technique only the other day!
I already kind of decided what to do when I started making this card, but as I was looking for something to make a masking area from I found my Chalk Talk Framelits and decided to give those a try. So I firstly stamped my flower from Flower Shop in Summer Starfruit, then punched a flower out of plain paper using the Pansy Punch. I also cut the label from Chalk Talk out of plain paper and position both over the stamped flower. TIP: If you add a little Tombow Glue to the back of each shape and allow it to dry before sticking it down, it becomes repositionable.
I then stamped the Hardwood Background stamp in Midnight Muse over the top, added a Papillon Potpourri Butterfly and my sentiment. I really like how this card turned out...might try some more masking this week!
