Having checked out the Less is More blog, I decided to enter a card into the current challenge. It gives me an opportunity to practice doing CAS cards, which are not my forte. As well because I used masking it also fits the challenge at Just Add Ink.
A book I’ve just read had an interesting image on the cover as well as at the beginning of each chapter and I’ve been wanting to try something similar ever since. Instead of a boat I chose the tail of a whale from a Hero Arts kit I’ve had for a while. First I made a mask so I could do the circle only then I stamped the tail. Then I added some masking tape across the middle after I had masked off the tail, for the sunshine, which I sponged on using Scattered Straw Distress Ink. Using the Kitchen Sink multi step By the Bay stamp set I added the water effect. The sentiment comes from a SSS set called Be Kind. The tiny drops denote water droplets and are from my stash. They are Swarovski crystals and really sparkle in the light. I used mineral paper for my images and I got very good results using it.
