Loveliest Layers Decorative Masks for #AYSI296

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the neat sketch called - Balance - over @ As You See It Challenge & it's a little different from what I usually create.  I was really drawn to the graphic look of the Loveliest Layers Decorative Masks but I haven't played with them much - and now they're retiring!  The #AYSI296 challenge inspired my creativity.  Please click the hyperlink above or the image below to enjoy the inspiration, and then go challenge yourself to try a new style. 


***  The Trix  ***

*  Use Grid Paper, #130148 to line up a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" piece of Basic White cardstock and hold in place with washi tape.  Lay the mask on top of the cardstock and line up with a grid line, hold in place with washi tape.  

*  Blend Basic Gray ink colour onto the mask using Blending Brushes, #153611  ***Trix, remember less is more, add colour in layers to create the desired depth of colour.

*  Create a green flower with Soft Sea Foam ink and Pear Pizzazz ink (retiring colour) on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock and cut out with scissors.  ***Trix, add a bit of dimension by curling the petal and adhering the centre of the flower only. 

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Go To Greetings Stamp Set, #158763 using Memento Black ink and round a couple of corners to pick up on the graphic elements of the mask.  Adhere with dimensionals.
