A little bird told me.

'Mask It', is our new Challenge theme over at
Fashionable Stamping Challenges.  So this time we would like you to use a mask as well as see stamping on your project .
Please pop over and see what my design team sisters have been making this time and get all the details.

I decided that I needed a change from Christmas cards and used this quirky stamp and sentiment by Lindsay Mason on this card.
The base card is covered  with black spiders mesh. Then a couple of blocks of masking before adding the image layers.
All the colouring on the masks was sponged with distress inks. A mixture of  Spiced marmalade, Victorian Velvet and Vintage photo.
The main image was water coloured, she looks quite a character to me.
Wonder if that bird us looking for somewhere to nest?

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.
