Today's card was created for the latest Less Is More and Addicted to CAS card challenges. I must admit that I struggle with clean and simple card. I love layers and patterned papers but this one came together fairly easy with the assistance of a some new masking stencils I recently purchased. To create my card I started by layering some basic black cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my white A2 card base. I then cut down a smaller panel using some 110lb cardstock from Staples. I taped my new Pink & Main Mask It In-Line mask to the panel and stamped the critters from the Close To My Heart In The Wild stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink. I then used the residue on the stamps to create masks and applied them to the animals. I then reapplied the circle stencil mask back over the images and applied Tim Holtz distress ink in salty ocean over the top. I removed the stencil and the masks from the critters and added some faux stitched lines around the edges to try and mask some of the imperfections in my stamping. I then stamped the sentiment from Stampin' UP's Curly Cute stamp set using more Versafine onyx black ink and adhered the panel the card using some 3M foam tape for some added dimension. I love how clean and simple this card turned out.
