Masking with the Shaded Summer Stamp Set for #PP582

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was inspired by Joanne's super colour challenge at The Paper Players Challenge #582 this week.  I chose to use the masking technique with the challenge colours, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody & Pear Pizzazz.  Please click on either my card or the #PP582 image to visit their blog post directly and enjoy the inspiration from all the designers.

Masking can be done with either our fabulous Decorative Masks, or create your own!  I created my own with the Summer Shadows Dies, but I challenge you :) to find a die you can turn into a mask.

Assembly & Trix:

*  Create a mask using the Summer Shadows Dies, (retired) as pictured below.  I use Basic White cardstock for stability.  Ensure the mask is held down well with sticky notes or repositionable tape, add colour with blending brushes. 

***Trix, when using the masking technique to create a layered image, the last image added will appear to be the background image.  The Pear Pizzazz leaves were the last to be coloured, but they look like they are behind the flowers.  ***Please click here to visit Lesley's StampinTrix Facebook Business Page to watch the 'how to' video coming this week.    

*  The highlight image for each flower bud is die cut with Daffodil Delight & Mango Melody cardstock, adhered with glue.

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Shaded Summer Stamp Set, #155783 with Mango Melody and fussy cut out.  Adhere it to the card base with dimensionals.  

*  Add the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon, #151311 & the Artistry Blooms Adhesive - Backed Sequins, #152477 for the bling.
