Sovushka Slavia MASTER CLASS "Disguise stamp cutting"

I really wanted to try this technique when I saw it, but I haven't had much crafting time recently and it took me a few attempts before I came up with a finished card.
I did originally try a watercolour background, but in the end I decided to go with distress inks applied with my ink dusters.

So here is my card

The distress inks I used were barn door, rusty hinge and wild honey.
The word die is from Clearly Besotted and the 'happy' is from the Clearly Besotted Sentimental Type set.

CAS(E) this Sketch #118

I really love this week's sketch at CAS(E) this sketch. The simplicity of the sketch allows for a great variety of interpretations. It's definitely a sketch I will use again.

Here is the sketch

and here is my card

For my card I used my Inky Doodles Floral Circles, a set I love playing with!

Sovushka Slavia CASEing # 2

Thought I would have a go at a different challenge and decided on this one at Sovushka Slavia Blogspot.

The challenge was to come up with a card based on the gorgeous card above, which was created by May Sukyong Park. 

For my card I decided to use the idea of masking a central area for the sentiment.

Here is the card I came up with

I used a star shaped mask and sponged distress inks through plasterer's tape. The distress inks I used were Barn Door, Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge. The little stars and splatters were created using a Lavinia stamp. The sentiment was from the Clearly Besotted Sentimental Type set.
