This is for today's challenge which was to try and reverse mask for the main image. I used the paisley dies from Spellbinder's. I stamped the bee onto white card stock, then die cut a scalloped paisley the next size up. I used it as the mask and sponged white craft ink onto black cardstock. When I removed the mask, it was a perfect frame for my white bee layer. I paper pieced the wings with vellum cardstock and outlined the detail lines on the wings and stinger with black glitter pen. I can't for the life of me remember where I got this cute stamp set, but it cracks me up every time I use it. TFL

What a big bottomed bee! ....and so cute at that! I got stung a week ago, so glad the bee didn't have a stinger this size! Darling card. Love how you did the bg. TFS :0)

Well look at you go, girl! I have no idea what masking means nor do I have any idea how to do it, but who needs to know when I can sit back and see what you've come up using that technique. So fun to see you in the gallery. It's been way too long, girl. You need to c'mon back where only us SCSers can truly appreciate amazing work like this. Darling image and oh such a fun card from you, our sweet Ms Terri! Great card!
