Just to say a huge Thank you all for your sentimental entries, we will do winners catch up this week (weds or thurs) so please check back then for all previous challenge winners.

Its my turn to set the challenge this fortnight and I'd like to see you using masking - This can be using a bought mask (or stencil), making your own, stamping your main image and masking over it before you do your background, using torn paper as a mask, but NOT a picture of a mask. I'd also like a short explanation of how you used your mask.

here is my contribution

to make this card i used a dreamweaver stencil with paste and a few die cuts the masking part of the design was made with distressed ink worn lipstick and a crafters workshop 6x6 plastic template used a dabber to ink it up added a piece of ribbon and thats that.
come and join us at crafty cardmakers and have a play with masking it's a great technique so give it a go
the link for the blog is on the lhs of my blog as i still can't seem to do links on this blog
