Hero Arts Challenge

This is the second post today, please scroll down for Wow Wednesday links.

There's a new challenge up at Hero Arts with the theme being Inspired by the 2011 Catalog and card insides and the featured technique is masking.

For my first submission I cracked open my new stamp set Delicate Leaf Clusters and inked away. I just love the leafy goodness of this set!

I used some Distress Inks to colour my paper and stamped the Leaf Cluster in white pigment ink and then stamped ontop and slightly off-set with copper pigment ink.

I also inked up the inside a bit

I masked off the inside, leaving an edge open where I double stamped the Plaid Pattern from the card front and added another image from the Leaf Cluster set.

Thanks for stopping by!
