Faith in Nature

Here is a sneak peek card made with a new Hostess set, Faith in Nature. I really liked the look of it so chose to buy it to play with early! This card was my swap creation for my regular monthly group.

Another sneak peek-we have Chocolate Chip ribbon! and more variety too :) Love that!! I've felt very limited this last year with only certain colors. No more!! And check out that cool scallop dotted ribbon. Fun!!! 

Card base is Chocolate Chip that I "dotted" with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder in the Big Shot. The Pear image, which has the script as part of the image by the way, was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Naturals White card stock. To color it, I created a reverse mask, two actually. By that I mean I stamped the pear image on scrap paper and cut out inside the pear. I lined that over the stamped image and used a sponge dauber to apply More Mustard classic ink inside the pear. More around the edge, leaving the coloring spotty and very light if any in the middle. I repeated the technique with the leave and applied the new color Lucky Limeade. . I knotted the Chocolate Chip ribbon around under the pear and stamped "Thank You" (also from this set) in Chocolate Chip near the bottom. The Naturals White is layered onto Lucky Limeade and More Mustard then attached to the dotted base.

Pretty quick and easy-it had to be as I ran myself late (imagine that!!) to get 20 made and in the mail on time.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope to be back more often in the upcoming weeks, but no guarantees as I get ready for Open Houses!

Beautiful card. Thank you for explaining how you did the masking and coloring. Your card served as my inspiration to make 50 In Color ATCs for an Open House pictured here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2011920?&cat=500&ppuser=184701. TFS!
