Hi everyone! Today a new Paint the Town color challenge has been issued over at
You have almost 2 weeks to get your card linked up for your chance at a sweet prize!!
Here are the gorgeous colors for March:
I had a little fun with this one.......using the EXCLUSIVE stamp from the February Market Fresh Kit that you can find HERE. Isn't this Doily stamp just gorgeous?? Seriously, it's one of my favorite doily images yet. (and I have quite a few doily images.......hehe) This kit has so many goodies and gorgeous papers that you can make lots of scrapbook pages and cards from. It's a great value and like I mentioned, you will receive this Doily stamp in your kit!
I wanted to show you just exactly how I used this one stamp to achieve the look of 2 stamps. It is reverse masking and it really isn't that hard to do. I first stamped my doily in Navy. Then take copy paper and punch a 1 3/4" circle. This serves as your mask. Simply lay this mask over the area you want to stamp and just stamp! Here is a photo to show you.
Remove the mask from your focal image and this is what you are left with. As you can see, I still got a little bit of the inner circle around my mask but never fear! I always try to "fix" a mistake before starting over! So, in my completed card, I simply die cut a banner and stamped a sentiment and it fits perfectly over my "mistake". No one knows right?? :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I always enjoy your comments and hearing what you've been up to!
Have a great Wednesday!
