Prettie Wednesday with Masking

German Phrase of the Day: Vielen Dank! = Many Thanks! Vielen Dank to all of you who keep coming back to visit really makes my day to know you all choose to come see my work. :)

2 weeks ago Joanne challenged the Prettie Girls to make a card using the masking techique. I wanted to something cool with reverse masking, etc...but in the end I got lazy! So, I stamped sweet little Sophia here, masked her using my eclipse masking tape, and stamped the oval under her feet to ground her. I know...kinda lame...but hey at least I got it done in time, right?

I used some gorgeous new Webster's Pages patterned paper that Christie sent to me in a recent box. Is she the best or what?!? She sent me this awesome box with lots of yummy designer papers, and some other fun new toys to play with. Boy, did I feel loved!! For the layout, I used CPS sketch #57. I used my CM curvy cutter to cut the paper...just love that thing!

As usual, I watercolored Sophia with an aquapainter and my watercolor wonder crayons (which is actually the challenge for next week...that was an EASY challenge for me!) The oval under Sophia was stamped with River Rock. The card base is a lovely textured Bazzill paper (also courtesy of Christie!) And I dressed her up with a little white taffeta ribbon and some half pearl stickers. I sure hope Julie likes it!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday ('s hump day!) and I'll be back with more fun tomorrow!
