Less is More - Week 59 - Theme - Masking

Hello Everyone - a quick post today as I'm off down to Portsmouth in a minute to meet my new great nephew Charlie.

This weeks challenge over at Less is More is Masking and my immediate thoughts turned to my JudiKins stamps - African Safari and Square Postage Frame.  I stamped the frame onto an off white pearlescent card and onto a piece of copy paper.  I then cut out the centre of the frame on the copy paper to use as a mask and also punched out a circle for the sun.  I inked up my brayer with Big & Juicy Foliage ink to give the background colour.  When it was dry I then inked up my African Safari stamp with Versafine ink and stamped into the frame.  I then cut out another mask for the whole frame, placed it on the card and then used an ornate swirl (unfortunately as it's a clear stamp and there's no name anywhere I can't remember where I got it from.......).  I inked this up with the Foliage inkpad and stamped over the masked frame.  The finishing touch was the sentiment which is by Hobby Art.

 Thanks for dropping by.
