Ink #198 Mask

A new challenge went live at Inkspirational yesterday and for the next two weeks the challenge theme is MASK.

I used the Bo Bunny Feeling Festive stamp set. I've always been fascinated by the Matryoshka dolls and their painted faces. I stamped the row of nesting dolls using the masking techniqe before adding the tree from the same set and a Hero Arts sentiment. Next I stamped a few extra dolls, fussy cut and colored the with Promarkers before glueing them onto the row of black and white ones. I added frantage and placed the panel onto a DP with green leaves.

This card is also for:
Passion For Promarkers Challenge - #515 Add a Sentiment
Addicted to Stamps and More - #363 Holiday

the coloured dolls look wonderful against the background and the black and white ones, the frantage adding texture and some bling, a beautiful card Pia

This is a super design! Great idea to stamp the row of Matushkas in black and white and then color some of them in addition to the black and white ones! Very fun look for an unique Christmas card. Is frantage the white splatter? LOVE it!! Everything in this card just makes me smile, goes together so well and is so well though and put together! xxx
