Best Friends

Whilst my sister is in the car on her way here and there is no possible way that she would be able to see this I thought I would show you all. My sister is two years older than me. We are very close - best friends even. I tell her everything. She moved away just over 3yrs ago :( - she was only just around the corner. I miss her heaps. I miss not seeing her everyday. So this is a special something for her.

I have noticed that a lot of cards are made with no background stamps so I thought I would give it a go. It was my second time at masking and it worked really well. I found the trick is to stamp the mask on really thin paper then you don't have gaps in the stamp when you stamp over the mask. Hope that made sense. I like the result - unfortunately I didn't have any grass etc for under her feet so I shaded with some Stampin' Up pastels - can't see very well in the photo. The only issue I had was the tree. When I was coloring it in the Copic marker bled everywhere. It was like I put water in the marker - it just came out. I used my blender pen and got most of it out but as you can see - it is still there.

Have a good day.
