I did make some cards earlier last month and have not posted them so I thought I would share one or two of them! Can you remember when I mentioned I had been experimenting with a new mask, and would use the result to create something?
I am entering this in the following:
Hotshot Craft: Ribbon
This one used SU Dye inks sponged on over the mask. I die cut the vine and the bird and cage, stamped a Verve sentiment and added some lace trim and mounted it onto a piece of purple card that had been punched with a Martha Stewart bird edge punch. tow Kaiser brads were also added. I wrapped the side that I added the brads to around the back of the card for about 1". I was pretty happy with it. The card base is a large 14" x 14" shimmery commercial blank.
This one was created using Tim Holtz Distress inks, which I then sprayed with a gold mica to give a lovely shimmer. The corner die cut was painted gold and I added some ribbon, a button, some flowers, a die cut spray and an embossed diecut butterfly. Again the sentiment is from Verve. This is all mounted on blue and then gold card and onto a commercial card base.
I am entering this one is the following:

The prize this month is fantastic!
You can win:
* A Marianne Design Butterfly Die.
* Anita's Flitter Fairy Wing Butterflies
* Kaisercraft Wire Flutterbys
* Some summery orange/yellow buttons.
This one is the base that was created with all the spray bottles. There was leakage under the mask around the bird. I just added commercial flowers with pearl centres, and two small butterflies cut using a Sizzix die from SU. The frame is an SU punch and the sentiment is a Verve stamps. The corners of the card were rounded and it was layered straight onto the black shimmer card base.
