Better late than never...

Well, I finally managed to make a card for the latest Less is More challenge where the theme is Masking. I made a one layer card using post its to mask off a sun within a section of the card. I used Adirondack inks in mountain rose, denim and lake mist with my ink dusters. I then removed the masking and stamped with Inkylicious flower and sentiment stamps.
 I used a touch of white gel pen and some cotton candy stickles to add a bit of interest. I'd never made a card in this style before seeing one of Chrissie's nearly 15 months ago, here. I now make them very regularly - thanks, Chrissie for the inspiration. Thanks for looking and I hope to visit some of my fellow LIMettes after Karate tomorrow night.

It's just stunning Sally and the stickles is a nice tough to highlight the flower stem.

But you did take away a bit of my fun naming the colours - spoilsport !

This is stunning, Sally. I love the shaded colour on your panel and that stamp is amazing. I love Inkylicious. Bought loads from them at Harrogate last Saturday.
Hope you have a good weekend.

This is a perfect card for the challenge, Sally. You have really mastered the technique too. I never really got down to that challenge this week - the garden got in the way. Thank you for your visit tonight and your kind comments on my moonlight scene. They are much appreciated. Good luck. xx Maggie

This CAS card is absolutely gorgeous Sally! At first glance I thought the flower was popped up but the white pen just made it appear that way! Well done!
Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog! I hope you get your Stampscape stamps out and join in the fun at Craft A Scene!
Hugs,
Sheree
