Masking a Scene with Clearly Besotted Stamps

Hello everyone! How are you all? I'm back to share a card I made for my Dad's 70th birthday. It was the perfect excuse to use my uninked vikings from a recent Clearly Besotted Stamps haul (don't cry, they'll be back in January!).



Yes - I had to add in Sven as well! My Dad doesn't have a big ginger beard (his brother does, however!), but he does have three girls, so here we all are making him feel loved.

I started off by stamping and then masking my viking children using my MISTI. I then stamped Sven on top and removed the masks - I love how something so simple can create a great scene.



I then did some Copic colouring before die cutting the card and adding in the sentiment from Mama Elephant's Photo Bomb set. I then popped it up on foam pads and adhered it to a top folding A2 (US) card base covered with Lawn Fawn plaid paper.

You can watch the video here or on my YouTube channel:

Before I sign off, I just wanted to let you all know that The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge starts its 6th outing on 1st November - I hope some of you are planning on joining me again - it's good fun!

Thank you so much for visiting today. Have a fabulous weekend whatever you are doing :)
