So this week, the pretties are masking. I love masking images to create depth to cards...it's so much fun - although more cutting than I am normally willing to do. However, when I saw this studious little Sophia (reading a book about trees acording to Julia!) I decided she needed to be relaxing on the beach under a palm tree.Story Time Sophia (the August Stamp of the Month!) is on whisper white cardstock, I masked her then stamped the palm tree from Soakin' Up the Sun. I colored everything with the few copics I have, adding in with my SU! markers where I had to. I used Certainly Celery and Old Olive for my palm tree...gotta get some green copics next!! Oh...and I can't find my B00 marker right now, otherwise I would have added some sky to go with my sea. Guess I really need to clean off my desk, huh??
Doesn't she look so relaxed there? She's down visiting Hula Sophia in Hawaii! :-)
I went with a simple layout so the focus stays on the wonderful image, using kraft cardstock for the card base along with some Real Red to layer. Be sure to see what masking masterpieces the other Pretties have created! Next week everyone's doing my Moving challenge!!
