Lost & Found Two...

Here is a card featuring stamps and papers from the My Minds Eye Lost and Found Two Blush collection. To create the main image I have took a butterfly die-cut which I used to mask of the area I didn't want to stamp in. Then I took the stamps from the Blush collection (currently out of stock, but this technique will work with any of these types of sets) and stamped around the edge of the mask, and once I had gone all around, but before I lifted the mask of I took some cut "n" dry and rubbed the black ink around the mask to define the shape a little more. When stamping around the mask, stamp off the page first to soften the ink...I did some a couple of times to make them appear softer...and even stamped straight to make it darker...

Ingredients Stamps - My Minds Eye Lost & Found Two Blush
 Ink - Versafine Oynx Black & Versamagic Java Brown chalk ink
Papers - My Minds Eye Lost & Found Two Blush
Cardstock - Bazzill Kraft
Punches - Tag & Martha Stewart butterfly
Embellishments - pearl bling, grosgrain ribbon, Stickles diamond

I hope you have enjoyed seeing something other than colouring from me...and remember that if the stamps I used are not in can use this technique with any other set...and whatever shape mask you can make your own.
