Masked butterfly

Back again today to share a masked butterfly card I made for A2Z Scrapbooking.   I have really enjoyed doing some masking and inking with this one,

I started by cutting a mask with the Fancy Butterfly die (DI708) out of Masking paper and placed it onto some watercolour paper.  I used a small dauber to sponge on some Abandon Coral distress ink in the centre of the butterfly.  I then added some Mermaid Lagoon distress ink all around the rest of the card.  My leaves are an ancient Hero Arts stamp (CG288 - now discontinued)  First I spritzed with water and stamped onto the background.  This gives subtle marks.  I then used some dark green ink to randomly stamp the leaves around the butterfly.  My sentiment is from Your are my Happy ( CL923 ) from the new Valentine's collection.

I hope you take time to join our challenge this month  ( see here) with your cards that use some masking...

Lovely work Dawn. Great masking and I love how you have used that HArts stamp (I have it too) to frame the main image.
