So, this week's challenge at Less Is More is 'Masking'. I thought about this one for a while and had a rummage through my stamps and wasn't inspired by them at all, then I remembered my mask. My friend Sue made me a stencil/mask a while back on her superduper Cricut, how clever is she? I'm sure I wouldn't even have a clue how to turn it on I'm so useless with computers. (some of you may have noticed)
So this is what I came up with.
I stamped the frame in the centre of my cardstock in Satin Red versafine and a sentiment by Hero Arts then covered it with a Post-It mask. Next I positioned the mask/stencil in opposite corners overlapping the frame and applied Distress Inks with Cut 'n' Dry. I mounted it onto a toning orange panel.... and job's a good 'un. It sounds as if this card took no time at all whereas in fact, it took about one and a half hours as I cocked up the first attempt and took my time with this one to avoid further mistakes. (Although there is a tiny red speck in the frame, but I'm hoping you will overlook this. I could have removed it in photoshop if I knew how to do it!)
I hope it has enough white space to satisfy Chrissie and Mandi but I'm sure they'll let me know if it hasn't.
Before I go, here is today's shot for March Photo-a-day, the theme was Green. (presumably for St Paddy's Day.)
These are my broad bean seedlings which have gone rather leggy as they've been germinating on a bedroom windowsill, but are now outside waiting to go in the allotment.
Thanks for looking and all your kind remarks. Who do you love ?
