Less is More - Masking

Another weekend is finally here, how quick the weeks are going. Have got a few days off from work and I am ment to be doing a bit of decorating, but thought I would have a quick go at the Less is More challenge, which this week is masking.
I watched Barbara Gray do something similar the other week, although I must admit I watched it through a bit of a haze suffering from a hangover, was very annoyed with myself for drinking to much wine hehe. Used a couple of post-It's to make a mask and then stamped around the edge with my lovely Kanban stamps and embossed in white. I used my brayer to add colour round the edges with Tim Holtz Broken China and Adirondack Juniper and used a clarity stamp for the sentiment. Mounted on to black card and thats about it.

Well thats it for today, off to sort some tea and will be back to do some commenting :)
