One Layer Card with Visible Image stamps
First step was to cut some masks, and for this I trimmed down some copy paper to fit through my 'bug, and used a variety of Nesties.
I cut a different one top and bottom, giving me 6 masks.
Selected my first mask, and attached it to the card front using repositionable tape runner.
Using Scattered Straw, Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed, I sponged on yellow Distress Inks. I followed that with Dried Marigold,Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade.
Now for some stamping. I used Versafine Sepia to stamp the 'background' stamps, and for all of these, I used a second generation stamping, all done with the mask still in place, to keep it within the sponged box. Then the mask was removed, and a Large Butterfly was stamped in the top left corner, this time using a first generation stamping. Small Butterfly was stamped bottom right, and another two trailing down the card.
Enlarged it here, so you can see the background stamping.
Final addition was the sentiment, again in Versafine Sepia.
Visible Image stamps:
Bronte Script,Ripped Fishnet, Ink splats( from Free Your Imagination set) Large and Small Butterfly, We have each other word stamp.
Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade.
