Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - My Call



Cant believe how fast the time has gone. Its my turn again to set this weeks challenge over at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and for this week, I have chose "Masking". I recieved my Gorjuss Girls the other day and couldn't wait to ink one of them up. Bit of a dilemma because all 6 are just beautiful. I have coloured my Gorjuss with Copic Markers. I then stamped her again onto Eclipse Masking Tape, but a post it will work just the same. Cut it out and placed over the stamped image on the card. I then used the grass from a Cuddly Buddly set and stamped ontop. When you remove the mask, the grass will have only stamped in the exposed area's. I aslo done the same with the bee. The papers are Basic Grey "Blush". I have hundred upon hundreds of papers but these are always a favourite of mine. Used my Martha Stewart punch all the way round to create a border. Some flowers are Prima and the others are from stash, leaves are made with my L-Em punch. Added a sentiment from Hero Arts though I'm not to sure about it, think its a bit large so may change it and Bazzill to mat and layer. I do hope you can join us in this weeks challenge, if you've not masked before, its pretty easy, just remember to stamp your main focal point first. The DT have done a wonderful job with their cards, why noy pop on over and take a look
Happy Crafting!
