AAA Cards #46


Hello there it's time to announce the latest challenge details over at 
AAA Cards 
The theme for this one is Maskerade (masking and/or masquerade theme)
I've gone with plain old pure masking as I didn't have any 'masquerade' style stash!


Using a brand new stamp set from Clearly Besotted called Cute as a Bug,
I started by stamping the caterpillar then masking it whilst stamping the flower head.
The flower was also masked then to add the stem and the 2 other blooms.
The images are coloured using my Zig Clear Brush pens with some white gel dots
and Zig Wink of Stella for added interest. I then re-masked all the images and used
a Tim Holtz: burlap stencil, inking through with Distress Ink in Cracked Pistachio.
Finally the sentiment is from the Clearly Besotted: Say it Style set.
I'd like to enter this card at a few challenges too
