MIM – Reverse Masking.

Hey folks.  Having a go at this weeks Make It Monday challenge over on Nichole Heady’s blog.  This week it’s reverse masking (which seems a bit like stencilling to me but hey ho!!).  I die cut the middle sized star from the Stars die set and used it to mask an outline into which I stamped one of the paint-splattery-type stamps from Grunge Me in Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores and Summer Sunrise.  I also blended a bit round the edge with the blender tool thingy (don’t you just love my grasp of the english language today!!)

Oh, and although she’s just a tad over 6 it’s also Aimes‘ birthday today so have a great day hunny pie – hope to see you soon.
