A Simple Thank You!


A nice simple thank you! I used the reverse masking technique and pastels for this effect. I really like how it turned out and will probably make a pack of these cards for a gift! This is a smaller size card too, don't ask, I didn't measure. The narrow ribbon adds to the delicate look, don't ya think?! Gotta love the House Mouse images!
This is my 2nd attempt at this technique, I'll post my first try later, maybe! Have a mice & easy day! Blessings!

Hi Maria,

I just love "House Mouse". This card is precious.

I also checked out your altered tin. Really nice. I've bookmarked a lot of the pages that you referenced.

Thanks for visiting my blog. We'll have to visit each other often.

I DO love this. I'm just fascinated at how beautiful a simple, one layer card can be. And I really want to acheive that too but I can't help myself from adding layer after layer!

I especially like the fact that you used reverse masking on your miage. I think it really draws attention to those adorable critters. The narrow ribbon is just the right size to add some pretty witout detracting from the image. Fabulous job!
