When I said at the end of my last post I'd be back soon I didn't expect it to be quite so soon! However, with the weather being so miserable and me as well, what better to do than craft. When I get up on a Saturday morning the first thing I do is look to see what the challenge is on Less is More and this morning it is Masking - now I use this technique quite a lot normally but I just couldn't think of anything I could do and then I had a sudden flash of inspiration to use the lovely toadstool stamp from Everybunny which is just perfect for masking. (I have shown a picture, above right, of the stamp to give you an idea of how I did the masking). I began by stamping the image onto a post-it note and then very carefully cut it out to make my mask, then I stamped onto Whisper White, using Early Espresso, stamping the central image first. Using the mask I stamped the image another 4 times, twice either side of the original and then coloured in using a blender pen and a mixture of colours. I managed to get a spot of ink at the top of the Whisper White so I decided to stamp the butterfly to cover it up, unfortunately I didn't quite get it in the right place so the spot is still visible but thankfully not enough to ruin the card. I wanted a generic sentiment so just used the hello which was inked using an Old Olive marker. I matted the finished panel onto a piece of Lucky Limeade cardstock, leaving the tiniest of borders around, and then fixed in the the centre of a plain white card blank.Oh well the rain has stopped now so I'd better get my skates on and get to the supermarket before it starts again!
