HLS August CAS Challenge - Masking

Hello friends.  Playing along with the Happy Little Stampers Challenge today, and masking is the technique we are being asked to use. 

I used Clearly Besotted's Remember stamp set and masked the flowers and leaves, and also used a Spellbinders oval die to make a template to mask the rest of the background before I colored in my background with Scattered Straw Distress ink. I embossed my sentiment in black (Think Big Favorites: 22 - PTI) and also the outlines of the Poppy flowers.  My reds (Real Red and Cherry Cobbler) are a lot deeper IRL!!

You can check out all the great cards by the Design Team and all the other players right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
