Muse Challenge #14

Hello again - I really enjoyed making a card for this weeks challenge at Muse - its been ages since I did any masking and stamping and I forgot how fun it is! After masking off my sentiment I  stamped my panel with white pigment ink and then stamped my flowers over it - I love the cool effect of this technique:)

 Thanks for stopping by - hugs xx

At Muse Challenge this week it's Virginia Lu's beautiful card for inspiration:




My take on the challenge:


I'd also like to add my 2nd card at Addicted to Cas:


Simon Says stamp also has an 'anything goes' challenge this week



Supplies: Hero arts background stamp & Cl611, white pigment ink, paper smooches - reflections stamps and hero arts shadow inks

Love this, Karen! The dark pink mat really sets off the flowers, and that white background is so gorgeously subtle - I nearly didn't see it!

I love how you've done your stamping, Karen. Having the white background and then stamping over the top really gives the design some depth. A gorgeous card- well done!

Such a sweet card and great take on the Muse this week. I love how you stamped over a subtle design- photos never give things justice- I want to hold this one in person and admire it up close;))
