Courage


This weekend wins the crazy running around award with only a few minutes to sit down. But...thankfully last night I was able to hide in my craft room for a couple of hours to create.  After seeing this gorgeous card from Maureen, I decided I need to have a little shop over at Verve.  I absolutely adored this courage sentiment and quickly wanted to put it to good use.  Cristina told me about the fabulous masking paper from Eclipse and I hadn't had a chance to use it yet. I loved how Aimes masked off the banner on her card here instead of creating a layer and I decided to do the same.  I used Erin's favorite PTI Wine Die to create the banner mask, masked it off and then inked away with Ranger Distress Ink.  I then simply added the sentiment and the butterfly die and I'm ready to roll for this week's CASE Study challenge.  Have to say I'll be trying this layout again. I loved Joy's inspiration card below!

Wait, don't you know that I don't have that die! That's how I got started, obviously, but it was back ordered so I just had to improvise... Great card, the masking is fabulous.

Aimes said...

Awesome masking, Lynn! I especially love that you picked that gorgeous shade of green for your background :)
Hugs!
