Anyhow, our challenge this week as been set by Kris & what a challenge. The sketch is fairly open, but that a good thing when you have a technique like Magical Masking as the 2nd part of your challenge.
Magical Masking is a is technique where you are going to get your fingers very dirty – ink dirty ie! It is fun & you will be either cursing or laughing while playing with this technique.

Stamp Set – Forever Young
Ink – Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Black Staz-On

Ribbon – 1/4″ Grosgrain – Night of Navy

For my technique, I used Night of Navy & Daffodil Delight Inks.
The image was stamped straight onto the Glossy Card & over my technique using Black Staz-On Ink.
I embossed a piece of the same Glossy Card using my Big Shot & Square Lattice Embossing Folder, tied a piece of ribbon across the top, tied a bow, tucked the ends under & adhered to the top of the large piece of Glossy Card prior to adhering to the Base Card – Night of Navy using Snail Adhesive.
Without the technique, a very easy 5 minute card. I am still making up my mind if I like this technique or not, but no doubt I will after I have played some more……
This is the great thing about challenges, it does get you out of your comfort zone & for that I must thank Kris.
Don’t forget to head on over to Sunny Challenges & Creations to check out what great cards Kris, Gwen, Christine & CherylAnn have created. It is amazing how differently we have all used this fun technique.
We would love it if you could join us for this fun challenge!
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
