I saw a card on the Artisan Blog Hop that I really liked.  It used a masking technique so I gave it a try.

The Love & Affection Stamp Set  contains some exquisite stamps that are perfect for producing simple cards that look beautiful.  And, many of the fabulous Stampin' Up! Demonstrators have used this set to perfection.  I saw one today created by Jennifer Frost when I was viewing the Artisan Blog Hop.

The card base is Mint Macaron.  Because I watercolored the image I used Shimmery White Cardstock for my stamped layer.  The inks used on my card are Flirty Flamingo, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive. The left side of my card is adorned with a strip of Affectionately Yours Washi Tape - it is also Mint Macaron.

A sweet Whisper White Baker's Twine adds the final touch to my card.

I stamped both the flower & the leaf images on a post-it note, fussy cut them  and put them in the case with the stamps for future use.  The masking technique is perfect for this stamp set because it allows me to group flowers together in a realistic fashion with some flowers appearing behind others flowers. 

I am anxious to try this technique again.  You can bet that I will be posting more cards created with this suite of products.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
