Happy Anniversary

PTI Make It Monday #221

Together is a Beautiful Place to Be 

This week Ashley Newell demonstrated a masking technique for sentiments. You can see several of her ideas and talent here - Make It Monday challenge

I made a stencil with the Papertrey Ink Modern Cross cover plate and directly applied a Hero Arts Butter to Orange Ombre inkpad over the stencil with a white 4.25 x 5.5" panel underneath. Before the stencil was removed I sprayed Heidi Swapp Gold Shine over the orange ink (not easily seen here but trust me it shines). Removing my sentiment mask I stamped a sentiment from PTI Quilted: Spring in Distress Ink Hickory Smoke. The panel was adhered directly to a white A2 card with some gold colored polka dot strips on each side to frame the panel. But it needed something more...aha! Since it was going to be an anniversary card (#42) using two birds would be perfect for my bird-watching hubby. I die cut the smallest bird dies from PTI Songbirds from a gold metallic paper. Perfecto (at least in MHO)  Such fun - hope he likes it too!

Maybe you can see the golden gleam better on this shot!
