A Masked Trio

Monday, August 19, 2013

I'm using Lacey Layers dies again, this time to create a 3 holed stencil.  I sponged on color and stamped the boat and bird images.  After removing the stencil I used the die cut circles to mask off the sponged area so that when I stamped the circle image I only got the words around the outside.  Because the masked area was larger than the center of the stamp, it stamped irregularly, but I that's the part I loved most about it!
I wanted to let you know about two features I recently added to my blog;
both added to the right sidebar.  First, by request, is a 'follow this blog by email' button.
Because I use a blog reader, Feedly, I wasn't aware of the need for this option, but I am happy to add it for you.  The second is a 'search this blog' button.  I was looking for a card recently and didn't know where to start.  I had to think of what month and what year I might have  posted it.  I thought it would have been so much easier to find if I have a search feature on my blog.
I hope you find  both of these helpful.

Nice to see you again!

  4. What a great card! Love the inking!

    Thank you for adding the "follow this blog by email" button! I will now never miss one of your amazing cards. :)

  5. I really like this one gives the illusion that the text is swirling around the images.

  6. Stunning design and execution, Kara! Thank you for adding the follow by email button; now I'm all set. I have the search button, too, but someone told me that on Blogger blogs, look in the top left-hand corner, way up at the tool bar and you will see a little box. That's for searching a blog, too! So now if you go to someone's blog (who uses Blogger) and they don't have a search button, you can still search their blog! Cool, huh? I had no idea.

  7. Gorgeous design ....turned out amazing!
