365 Cards - #163 - Try A Technique - Masking

The challenge today over at 365 Cards is Try A Technique - Masking. I chose the SU Fifth Ave Floral for this technique. I also used my Derwent Watercolour pencils and the colour I chose for the pink coloured flowers was far too in your face and the more I tried to soften it the louder it got so I gave up in disgust. So I am warning you now to put your sunglasses on okay. The rest of the card is self explanatory but I will list it all the the supply list. I have no voice today and the family are loving it. My little baby grandaughter, Sophie keeps looking at me weirdly as if to say "why do you sound so different Nanny?" lol. Okay I am off to bed now that my card is done.

In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU Mellow Moss and Very Vanilla cardstock. DCWV Textured cardstock. Unknown DP. Kaiser flowers and pearls. Button from stash. SU Hemp Twine. Ranger Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. Derwent watercolour pencils. Lace from my stash.

I love the colors and do not think it requires me to use my sunglasses. Sounds like you are still under the weather a little bit.
Hope you will be on the mend soon.
