I wanted to try doing some colored pencil work on black card stock and decided to do some masking as well.

i started by stamping white ink on black card stock.  

 

This is my main image, so it goes first, everything stamped after it will appear "behind" this.

I finished my image and then masked all parts.

Then that was trimmed and adhered to the base and the sentiment was stamped and embossed.

And the finished product after adding some accents with a white gel pen.

 

Done!

I used some flower stamps for this, but you can really use any image you want to color. I used Prismacolor pencils and a blender. Happy crafting!

I recently found out someone I know was battling a serious illness and they beat it. I immediately wanted to make them an extra special card, here it is! Start by cutting a 4 x 5.25 inch piece of card stock

4 x 5.25  

4 x 5.25  

and another at 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

4.25 x 5.5

4.25 x 5.5

Then cut a shape from the smaller block and a circle smaller than the shape you chose out of the larger block.  

 

Big shape small block, larger block smaller circle. 

Big shape small block, larger block smaller circle. 

Then mark the front of your notecard base and cut out the same circle. 

 

Mark the card.

Mark the card.

Also mark the inside of the card to line up with the opening.

Cut a piece of acetate the same size as the 4 x 5.25 block and attach it.

Cut a piece of craft foam to 4 x 5.25 and cut a bigger circle out of it.

I decided to stamp a small flower on the front and added some rain stones.

I attached them with my Pick-me-up and some Glossy Accents.

Next, pick out what you want to put inside of your shaker and attach the layers.

Now you can stamp your sentiment where it will be visible through the front. 

 

You'll see the "hope" through the front.
