Hey there!! Happy Sunday! What a crazy weekend we have had here in W. Washington. Yesterday it rained, then snowed, and then rained!! All in the space of about 2 hours!! The sun came out for a few hours and then it was back to rain. Now it is raining, again... ugh!! Oh well... that is Washington!
Less is More and the Craft's Meow birthday celebration sketch challenge. This week at Less is More Chrissie and Mandi are asking us to do some masking. I don't often do masking and I'm not entirely sure why because it is super easy to do. Anywhoo... for my card I used the cute Craft's Meow set "Owl Be Thinking of You". I stamped the little girl owl using Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock. I then stamped her again on some Eclispe tape (the best stuff for masking!), trimmed her out and then placed the mask over the original image. I then stamped the boy owl so that he is positioned slightly behind his gal. Both were colored with Copic markers (not the best coloring job, either). There is a little image of hearts in the set and I stamped that above the owls, colored then with markers and then added some Diamond Stickles. The image was die cut with a Spellbinders circle die, as was the mat. I used a scrap of paper from the Scrap Cake "My Private Happiness" pad to mat the central panel. The little banner was created by simply stamping the sentiment on a .5" x 5.5" strip that was scored at 1" from either end, folded and then trimmed to created the fishtail on either end. Pretty simple card with lots of white space which should please Chrissie & Mandi. As indicated above, this card is also for the Craft's Meow birthday celebration sketch challenge. The Craft's Meow is celebrating it's first birthday March 17th - 20th. In addition to providing sneak peeks of their new stamp sets, they are having lots of giveaways and challenges. Make sure you check it out!
