Masking technique

I am trying my hand in making CAS cards. I have tried masking technique in this card. I used flowers from Altenew stamp set Beautiful day.

I drew a circle since i wanted the image arranged in an arch. I stamped the flower image on Neenah cardstock, masked it to stamp the leaf so that it was behind the flower. then I masked the leaf so that I could stamp the bunch of flowers. I stamped the image lightly to color them using no line coloring technique.






I used Copic markers to color and shading and highlights done with Derwent water color pencils. I did not have good color pencils and Derwent has bright color shades. 


I cut the circle and around the image to make a window. Layered the window with embossed cardstock. Added sequins to add a bling to the card. Stamped and embossed the sentiment from the set and layered it with black cardstock. Here is the completed card.




The color inspiration was from Aletnew March challenge : From Places Abroad - France
