The Masking Technique is used to stamp the flowers on this card.
For this technique, firstly stamp the image on your card. Then stamp it again on a scrap piece of paper (post it notes are great as the sticky piece ensures the mask stays in place). Cut around the stamped image, cutting just inside the lines - this piece becomes your mask. Place this over the image on your card. Stamp another image over a portion of the mask to create layered images. Repeat as necessary. On my card I stamped the corner image, then placed the mask over that flower then stamped the other 2 flowers.
The card stock for this card are Calypso Coral (#124392), Basic Black (#121688) and Crushed Curry (#131288). The DSP is from the Watercolour Wonder (#132994) which is in the Occasions Catalogue. I stamped on the DSP using Calypso Coral ink (#126983) with the flower from Everything Eleanor stamp set (#124164). Happy Birthday is from Express Yourself stamp set (#130339) which is one of the hostess products. The punches used for the sentiment are Word Window (#119857) and Modern Label (#119849). I added some Dazzling Details (#124117) to the stamens of the flowers. The Woodgrain
Folder (#127821) was used to emboss the base card. The little butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits (#118138) with a Pearl Basic Jewel added.
