Because

I am pretty impressed with this card. There were quite a few steps! I stamped the tree in Staz-on on Gloss cardstock, masked a circle around the tree then masked individual parts of the tree. I started daubing the sky with Bashful Blue then Brocade Blue and Night of Navy then masked off the sky to do the tree and grass. Thankfully I got a phone call just after I finished the daubing so I was able to let go but for a while there I was getting new ink pads and opening them with my mouth because I couldn't let go or the circle mask would move!!

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Canvas Print & 'Because' from Expressive Flexible Phrases
Cardstock: Ivory, Brocade Blue, Night of Navy, Certainly Celery and Gloss
Ink: Brocade Blue, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Mellow Moss, Close to Cocoa & Jet Black Stazon
Accessories: Sponge Daubers & Linen Thread

Amy this is STUNNING! You've done a beautiful job of masking and colouring! Am having a hard time imagining exactly how you opened ink pads with your mouth, but obviously you got the job done :)
