A Halloween MASK

...a MASKed card, that is!

Here is another card with Melanie's set A Year of Flowers. I masked the center flower to stamp the background flowers. Although it appears that the flowers are cut out---they are just colored with Copics to achieve that depth!

The background is created with my Scor-Pal! The sentiment is from Asela's set Botanical Dreams. I just cut it out after stamping and mounted it on top of a chipboard slider that I colored with a black Copic marker.


Here is a close up of the main image:






Love those flowers!

Materials used: Stamps- A Year of Flowers, Botanical Dreams (Gina K Designs); Cardstock- black, whisper white, bannana (SU!); Copic markers; ribbon-offray; crystal stickers (Mark Richards); brillance black ink; Circle Nestabilities and Scalloped circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Scor-Pal; Chipboard slider (SU!); dimensionals (SU!); black brads.
