New Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge - World Wildlife


We've got a new challenge today on the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge and this week our theme is 'world wildlife' - for all the details about the challenge, have a look here on the challenge blog.

My card was made for a demo I did yesterday at the stamping club I belong to.  I was asked to demonstrate masking and I decided to include reverse masking together with the more traditional type of masking.

I die cut an oval from a piece of card, placed this over a square and white card and then applied three shades of Distress Inks through the aperture.  I used a circle die cut from a post-it note for the sun.

Finally I stamped 'Silhouette Elephants' from Little Claire over the inked oval, keeping the mask in place.  The stamp can be found here on the Little Claire website.
