DT Monthly Technique - Masking

My DT Card for the Monthly Technique with SweetStamps

Hi all you wonderful people out there! 

Hope you all are having a fab day today! I have been so busy in and out of Edinburgh today for meetings and just been so crazy! 

Well now I can relax and show you the fun I had with Months Technique Challenge across at!!! 


Just a reminder that this challenge lasts until 14 September

You get an extra chance to win when you use a SweetStamps image on your creation.

**All of these techniques and more can be found on the TUTORIALS page of our website**  

Well here is my take  on it!

My take on Masking Technique was fun to create. 
I have this lovely Stamp from ArtsyFartsy, she is called Parisienne Collage ATC AF10

well .......

I stamped her on a scrap bit of paper and cut the image out.  I stamped my Image on my main card and then placed my cut out of my image on top and stamped another stamp to create my background again. Remove the copy and WOW! 
I have masked my image! 
As easy as 1 2 3!

I used hammered card for my main card and  made a A5
I stamped my Image and layered it on Pink Card

This is a fantastic Stamp! 
She is 1 of the new stamps that
are selling and is the correct size for an ATC

The die I used is from 2 Die 4 - 119 from Hobbycutz

I distressed my edges with Tim Holtz Ink - Spun Sugar

I used Promarkers to colour just here and there in to create focal points
Battered Rose and Baby Pink

I added Pearls on the left and right top of my card 
to balance it out with Flowers, Leaves and Lace Ribbon below

Well I hope you enjoyed this project of mine and I hope I could be of some inspiration to you!
