ATCAS #57 - MASK

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!
Hope you are having an amazing day with your loved ones :)
We are back with a new challenge at Addicted to CAS . This time the host of the challenge is fabulous Harriet and she has chosen the code word... MASK. Possibilities are endless, you can work with the literal word and use a mask in you creation or you can do a very popular technique of masking . I would also like to welcome our Guest Designer Ellen Parker of "In a world of craft"! You will love the beauty she created :) Check out more of her creations HERE
Our winner will win a $20 Gift voucher from our amazing sponsor Inspired by Stamping  

Inspired by Stamping
I went with the masking in my case. Here's my card...
To make this card, I took a white card stock panel and stamped the sentiment, the little boy and cherry on cupcake, masked them and stamped the cupcake. Next I colored these with markers. I also added an inlaid panel of die cut patterned paper for some interest and yet keeping it one layer. I am sharing this at A Blog Named Hero - Small scaleOne Layer Simplicity challenge #13 - You blend and Addicted to Stamps & More #131 - Anything Goes!

Our DT has come up with some amazing projects this week. Pop over to our ATCAS challenge blog here and take a peek. I am looking forward to the challenge this fortnight and am very excited to visit your blogs.


I am not done yet! I am adding this card to a previously written post, I created this card for my husband :D yesterday and I had to share it. This again used Mama Elephant goodness...
I did masking to stamp the little girl and the boy in Archival black ink, and did some water coloring on them. There dresses are paper pieced using a news print patterned paper. I am sharing this at CAS(E) this sketch #110, CASology Week 133 - Love and Color Q #279
  

Have fun in creating CAS card :) and thank you for visiting my blog.
