First Masking Card...!!

OMG.. This was like unbelievably fun... I tried a new technique and I loved it.. It was truly something out of my comfort zone for as everyone here is aware am so much more comfortable using digi images than trying to stamp them...  I was cribbing to Tejal that am bored of the work I am doing and I wanted to try something new.. So it was her brilliant idea that I should try a one layer card and try masking.. So thanks Tejal, a big round of applause for her.. Another round of thanks to the manufacturers of Blackberry without whom this could not have been possible as she kept passing me instructions through the BBM and I went clicking pics and sending her pics to make sure that what I was doing was OK.. Another round of applause to my Blackberry service provider which is Bharti Airtel.. They ROCK..!! LOL Now that all the accolades are over, I'll get back to my card and Tejal.. Thanks once again..

This is my first true CAS card to be honest.. for in essence CAS cards should be minimally LOUD, if you know what I mean...!! And this is it... !!! Take a look at the card...!!




:D... I love these rose stamps.... I'll give you a close up of the roses...


Here it is folks.. First CAS Card.... Phew..!! Honestly... The simpler the cards are, the more difficult it is to make them.. Choosing the right color combo, the stamp, the placement.. When you have a multi layer card.. it's more like going with the flow and placing things here and there till all of the elements kind of coherently organize amongst themselves..But these simple cards and really fast to make and I kind of like to pace my work...!!

It's a white fabriano elle erre card stock measuring 5.5*4.25 and have rounded it's corners... The stamp image and sentiment is from a MICIA stamp set which I got from Karuna's store.. The sentiment is inked used french Lilac from Unity bought from Ujjwal and the image is inked using Noir from Untiy too...Have used Pie Lane glitter balls for my flower centers....
