Say It With Masking and Sponging!


This was quite a challenge this week!! Over at the AnnaBelle Stamps blog, the weekly challenge is to say it with masking and sponging. For this card I decided to use the Daisy Delight set:

I used Kraft for my main layer and masked the medium sized daisy three times and then added a small daisy to finsih off. I stamped them in Real Red ink and clear embossed each daisy. Then I used my R22,R24,R27 copics to colour the flowers and dotted the centres with my white gel pen. I sponged the edges of the flowers with Whisper White Craft ink and gradually softened the edges.  I used a sentiment from Acacia stamped in Tuxedo Black ink and added some chilli sprinkles underneath. This layer was then added to some red cardstock which had been edged with my Upper Crest border punch along the bottom. once adhered, I added some red gingham ribbon along the bottom. All the layers were then added to a Kraft base.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Acacia, adding a small daisy mounted on top of some leaves also from the Daisy Delight set.

Head on over to the AnnaBelle Stamps blog and see all the other designers' cards.
