MFT Card Challenge #314

Hello my friends!

Thanks for stopping by! I was able to do some crafting this weekend while away with my friends, and managed to make a card for this weeks MFT Sketch challenge. I did a bit of masking, and ink blending, check it out:

I started with a white panel, and stamped each cactus image from the Sweet Succulents. The center image first, as I wanted it to be front and center, then masking it. I then stamped the two others. I then masked those two, and taped off the section of the panel that I didn't want inked, around the images. I brought in my Distress Inks using a foam applicator, in the colors of Squeezed Lemonade, Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, and Chipped Sapphire.

After I blending on the ink, I removed all of the tape, and the masks that covered the cactus. I colored in each one with a different green color combination, and finished by stamping a simple Happy Birthday sentiment below the scene.

I mounted the panel onto an orange card base using foam tape, and opted for no additional decoration. Hard to resist for me, but I didn't think it needed it.

Thank you, again for stopping by today! Have a great day!
