“Summer Breeze”

I have a little group of ladies that I teach stamping to each week

and they are called “The Stamping Diva’s”
The card that we are making this week concentrates on masking.
It has such a floating feel to it and conjures up images of carefree summer days.

The main image is die cut into a piece of copy paper,
and this became the mask.
The inks are Victorian Velvet and a thin edge of Aged Mahogany.
While the mask is still in place I stamped a flourish in V V,
then took the mask off and stamped the same image with A M.
Then I punched some small butterflies and used this as a mask to mask over the main area, some on the masking area and some off that area as well.
The butterflies themselves are just stamped on white cs and inked up with the same inks, cut out and attached so that the wings fold out.
It is a simple, but effective card and very pretty in pink.
I think it can be used for just about any occasion.
I am entering this card into the following challenges ~
