AEIHeartU Challenge: Masking

Hello card making friends!

I am stopping in to let you know about this months AEIHeartU Challenge.  It is one of my fav card making techniques, masking!  I grabbed an oldie, but a goodie, Petals & Stems.

I started by using the Dotted Borders Elle-ments dies, and cut a white panel.  I marked on my card base where those would go, and then stamped my flowers within that area.  I used Mint, and Goldenlocks from Simon Says Stamp, as well as Sweet Nectar, and Mojito from Wplus9.

To add a bit of punch to my flowers, I took a matching Copic marker, and highlighted parts of each of the petals.  I then stamped my sentiment on the curve, and added the white sections using foam.

Here is a look at the markers, and inks I chose.

I do hope you'll play along with us this month, there is plenty of time to enter!  Have a great one!
