Studio L3 - Compendium of Curiosities 14


Hi everyone, hope you're having a good weekend. I'm entering Linda's Compendium of Curiosities challenge 14 today, I've missed the last couple of weeks so I enjoyed this one. It's Masks Basics this time on page 58 of the book and I've masked the leaf on the right hand side. All the stamps are TH from various sets, stamping and sponging done with Distress Inks, white pigment ink and Archival Ink. I finished off with some extra stamped and cut out leaves, mint coloured velvet  ric-rac and a metal corner. Thanks as always for your lovely comments and enjoy your Sunday.

Chris, it's so great to see you again! Your sweet, colorful card is truly gorgeous!I love the contrast of the perfectly masked leaf with the stamped, cut out versions-- it gives the card a lot of depth. The bright pink sentiment looks so cool, and the subtle harlequin pattern in the background is a fabulous addition.

Thanks so much for coming back to the CCC! ♥
