AAA CAS Cards Challenge #74

Hi friends, are you ready for a new challenge over at 
AAA CAS Cards Challenge
I hope so ... this one's all about masking so have some fun but
please keep it Clean and Simple.
I've got two cards for you today using masking ... 

This one uses the Birthday Butterfly set by Happy Little Stampers and having
created a masked frame around the central section of the card I heat embossed 
the butterflies and sentiment with (my new favourite EP) Ranger Liquid Platinum!
I masked the butterflies as I went along then coloured them with promarkers.

I'd like to pop this one in at Anything Goes with Happy Little Stamps
I just love this Birthday Butterfly set and it's my go-to set for these 
gorgeous winged creatures!

Next up using the same masked frame I've used a Multi Facetted stencil
by My Favorite Things then inked through with Distress Inks in 
Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron.
A quick flick and spritz of water mixed with Perfect Pearls because I just
can't resist doing that!!!! The sentiment is by Neat & Tangled: Everyday Circles
plus the 'birthday' greeting from Avery Elle: Sentimental. The cirular panel is popped 
up on 3d foam for dimension and to finish a few sequins.
As always my teamies have worked their masking magic and you can
find links to their blogs HERE plus we are joined by another of our
previous winners and a super talented crafter too
Rahmat of Cards and Cooking Corner
I'm sure you'll have come across Rahmat in blogland but please
pop along and leave her some love ... I'm sure she'd appreciate it.
Our sponsor for this one is Stampendous and if you want to be in 
with a shout of a prize then please link your entries up by 8th October! 
Thanks so much for calling by today and I hope you have fun with the challenge!
