Masked!


The theme at the stampotique challenge is to use masks.
I have masked twice on this image. I masked the crown and stamped smile over the top, then I masked smile to add the heart banner, This is a really simple card, but one I really enjoyed making, as it was the first time I had ever played with a stamp positioner (well some lego and clear plastic packaging, actually) I can't believe what a difference it made, and I will be using it lots more.
The image is coloured with pencils. Unfortunately the picture's not the best as it's scanned due to the lack of light. bring on spring!!

Stampotique stamps are available from Stampotique and happy daze in the UK

My copy of craft stamper arrived today, and I'm thrilled with how my article looks, the staging of the cards is just perfect. However there obviously wasn't enough room to publish my introduction (I do have a tendency to ramble) so I've included it in my post about the article
