Sunrise/Sunshine


Just a quick post today. I'm getting ready for part of my family visiting for Memorial Day weekend. I'll get to be with two of my little munchkins/grands this weekend. I can hardly wait.

My card was made last week for the MIX68 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The theme was reverse masking which I did to get my flower colored and stamped inside. I also did a mask over the flower so I could spray and use Distress paint around it.

I added a stencil and sentiment and that was it.

Recipe:
Stamps-Heartfelt Creations/Vintage Wildflower 2 , Inpsired by Stamping/Just Because, Stampendous/Sunrise Sunset
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Tim Holtz Distress Paint/Seedless Preserves and Wild Honey, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist/Dragonfly, Copics-R14, R17, R24, Dylusions Stencil/Alphabet Border (small-with designs),Ki Memories rhinestones

I think this is it for me until I post my CAS card next week. That will be the end of my time with the CAS DT on Splitcoaststampers.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Hallo liebe Benzi,
wie maskiert man den rückwärts? gibt es eine Anleitung? das würde mich sehr interressieren.
Die Blume ist so wunderschön, ich bin begeistert. Auch wie Du den Hintergrund mit Glimmer Mist bearbeitet hast finde ich toll.
Eine gelungen Arbeit.

Viele liebe Grüße, Carmen (✿◠‿◠)
