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 Kara...it 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!
