Live in the Moment

Hi there and Welcome to my Saturday post for 
As we have 5 Saturday's this month it's our
Wild Card Week and the Lovely Lisa 
wants us to do some Masking.
Here's my simple masking - and
it's my first make for 2021.
All the others you have seen were made before
I had knee surgery back in early December.

My favourite Visible Image Creative Chaos stamp
is an easy one to mask. All I had to do was stamp
the main image and cut out the head flower,
adhere it lightly and create a background then remove it.
I have used a few stamp sets here -
two I received from my dear talented crafty friend Mac Mable
(Big Thank You here)
who knows how much I love VI and AALL&Create stamps.
I inked AALL&Create #383 and 
Visible Image Somewhere in Time for my background
with Tim's Black Soot and Hickory Smoke
and smooching Lindy's Sprays and Magicals.
The flower was inked with Dusty Concord Archival Ink.
Sentiment is from Visible Image Live in the Moment.
Gave it a light spray also with Perfect Pearls.
Adhered to purple card stock.
PS I so enjoyed making this card especially inking up 
those new stamps - getting me back into my craft room.

Here a close up!

Pop over and see how our Guests 
Carol and Melanie and the Team
played with masking their cards.
A Big Thank You to our Guests Carol and Melanie
for sharing their talents with us this month.
Hope to see you in the Gallery this week.
Thanks for dropping in.
