Hi there dear friends!! Today was an absolutely beautiful day!! I am so thankful for the blue skies and warm temperatures which made weeding the garden absolutely delightful!! I also had some serious cleaning to do, some chauffeuring, and then I was finally able to do some creating this evening! I was so excited to use PTI's Bundle of Love stamps. They are the cutest stamps ever!! Of course I had to add a little Garden Variety to the mix and I am so happy with the results!! I used the PTI Make It Monday challenge.
Make It Monday #20: Reverse Masking
I have also been contemplating the Gallery Idol Competiton and I finally feel like I have a project worthy of entering. I am so intimidated by the amazing artists that have entered, but you never know unless you try! So here goes!
I used a Spellbinders Nestability to die cut a circle out of some computer paper that was cut to the same size as my focal point cardstock base. I used removable tape to glue the die cut to the cardstock. I stamped a border stamp from PTI's Night, Night Moon stamp set inside the circle. I used a Tim Holtz blending tool to add ink inside the circle as well. I just love the little circle of moon and stars this technique created! I fussy cut the stork and baby and I die cut the fence and added some Garden Variety stamps to create a sweet little scene.
I outlined the stork with a ROOO Copic marker to add some color and I inked everything with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink. I also inked the Spring Rain cardstock with Fresh Snow ink to soften the background.
Cardstock: PTI Spring Rain and Vintage Cream
PTI Stamps: Bundle Of Love, Garden Variety and Night, Night Moon
Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, Fresh Snow, and Spring Rain; Tim Holtz Tea Dye, Crushed Olive and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink
PTI Dies: Picket Fence

I appreciate you taking time to stop by my blog today!!
