Hi everyone! Happy Friday and May 1st! It’s time for a new challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #37 – Anything Goes + Masking! As you know, our challenges are always ‘anything goes’ and we offer an optional technique twist each month just to inspire you – and this month’s twist is masking! I created a… wait… one layer (yessss, one layer AND clean and simple!) birthday card featuring masking of a bunch of sweet feline friends wishing somebody a happy birthday!
I think this might be the second or third one layer card I’ve created in all my adult crafty life, lol – and it’s CAS – this doesn’t happen very often! I colored these little guys and gals with my Prismacolor Pencils so there would no bleeding through the cardstock. I really need practice as I’m still such a novice using colored pencils.
I stamped the ‘from all of us’ sentiment on the inside in black ink.
And one more peek… so sweet! I love it!
