Masking Butterfly Basics for ATCAS


It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS.

Harriet is our hostess this week and this is what she chose....


We have a new Guest Designer for this month, Ellen Parker (In a World of Craft).

I can't wait for you to see what she designed for this challenge!

And as always, the rest of the Design Team has outdone themselves!

Our sponsor this week is

Inspired by Stamping

giving a $20 gift voucher to our winner.

To make this card, I inked the flower from the new Butterfly Basics (SU) set 
with Stampin' Write Markers and stamped on a piece of Whisper White.

I huffed on the stamp and stamped again in the background.
(Second generation stamping.)

I stamped the flowers on a sticky note and fussy cut that out 
to use as a mask.

Placing the mask over the stamped flowers, I stamped the fern, 
which had been inked with a Wild Wasabi Stamin' Write marker.

I swiped the markers on a plastic lid and picked up some color
with a Blender Pen and lightly added some color to the inside
of the flowers and around and between the flowers to.
I liked that watercolor look.

Now it's your turn.
I can't wait to see what you create.

(our sister challenge)
is 
ANYTHING GOES
