This year is disappearing so quickly, so now's a really good time to get your Christmas on and head over to the new Christmas Challenge at Happy Little Stampers.
Here's my card:
I started by masking the whole card apart from a central circle and then placing a smaller circle mask in the middle of it. I then stamped randomly using the splatter stamp from Mixed Media Fun.
I lifted the masks and stamped the poinsettia which I coloured using 'new to me' Chameleon pens. I'm thinking the green leaves worked out better than the red petals and I have to admit I'm not finding these pens as easy to use as I thought I would.
Stamps: HLS Christms Joy & Mixed Media Fun
Inks: Versafine, onyx black; SU, cherry cobbler
Pens: Chameleon, grass green, crimson red, black
Embellishments: Bling Bling gems
There are lots of ways to use masking on cards and I'm sure you'll be inspired by the techniques used by the rest of the HLS Christmas team - you can find them all here.
Thanks for looking today, I'm enormously grateful as I know your time is precious. And keep crafting!
