Weekend Challenge #45

This is for Beate's weekend challenge. Lori and i have been kicking each other to get stamping more so we are going to start doing this challenge every week.. maybe one more also.. we will see!

Stamps: Friendly Flowers, Weathered background
Inks: Groovy Guava, Purely Pomegranate, close to cocoa
Paper: close to cocoa, purely pomegranate, groovy guava, whisper white
Other: pomegranate double stitched ribbon, crimper, dimensionals, ticket corner
A Bazzill cocoa brad tops it off.

I used the masking technique on this card and stamped off the back two flowers to make them lighter.

Instructions to Masking:
Stamp your image on a sticky note then cut it out. Stamp your project and cover your image with your sticky note and stamp your image again or use another image- the sticky note will make sure you do not get ink on your original image and will make the image appear to be in the background. You may need to make a few "masks" if you are going to make a fuller image.. i made two for this card.

I love the colors .. what do you think?

A big thank you to Lori for walking me through getting the watermark seal on my cards... what a pain to set that up!
Have a great weekend and happy stampin'!
