Stampin for the Weekend - challenge #8 "Masking"

Hiya guys, hope your all enjoying the Summer Hols so far, I've had a disaster of a start over at my Paperlicious Oasis but that's another story, all I'll say is squirrels, loft and leaky ceilings.

So onto week 8 of our challenges over at Stampin for the Weekend and our sponsor this week is Windrush Cards & Crafts, who are very kindly offering a House Mouse stamp called "Exciting Celebration" for the lucky winner

Our challenge for this week is entitled "Masking" and we would love to see two or more stamped images on your card or project of your choice.

We have a new guest designer, Suzie will be joining us for the next two weeks, so why not pop over and check our her wonderful designs.

Here is my card for this weeks challenge. I have used three Magnolia stamps for my masking technique, the images have been coloured with distress inks. The papers are MME "bloom & grow", the sentiment and oval shapes are SU and the butterfly is from my new Spellbinders die, I'm still trying to get used to using it in my Big Shot and not really getting the results I want, so I shall have to play around a little more. You may just notice a sneaky peak at the MS Flourish punch on the left hand side of the image, it arrived on the weekend and although I really love it, I think I may be doing something wrong as it doesn't punch as good as I was expecting it too.....
My fabby teamies have come up with some stonking creations again this week, please pop over and check out their blogs to see for yourself. I hope you'll be able to join us for this weeks challenge over at Stampin for the Weekend, looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Thanks for popping by my lil oasis and for all the lovely comments, for which, as always I am so grateful for. Enjoy your weekend, take care, luv 'n' hugs xx vicki xx

Gorgeous card Vicki, love how you've put the three images together to create a nice scene. Your coloring is fabulous and I love that big butterfly you've got. The papers are lovely and I do like that sentiment.
Hope you've got your leaky pipes all sorted now........thanks to those pesky squirrels.
