Splitcoast Featured Stamper Card

Good  Morning!  This is one of those types of cards that are my favorite to make, you know....the kind with lots of stamping.  I love the way this turned out and I will certainly be making a few more of these. I made this card for yesterday's featured stamper challenge on splitcoast stampers.  The featured stamp this week is naturecoastcrafter and this is her card that I decided to case.  Congrats to you Jean for being this week's featured stamper!

I loved the card that Jean made so I wanted to try and keep the same basic layout and stamp arrangement.  I ended up using different, but similar stamps and I loved the colors she used, but I decided to add riding hood red for my flowers and card base.

I began making my card by first cutting out my mask.  In other words I cut out a label die and I used the reverse part of that cut out for my template for my masking/sponging.  I placed that over top of my card base and I began my sponging.  I sponged darker around the edges and lighter towards the center.

Once my sponging was finished I began stamping my images- this is the fun part!  Simply stamp away! 
For my embellishment I decided to add a basic pearl in the center of the two flowers.

I decided to go ahead and make a video of my card  using the reverse masking technique.  I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!
