Hero Arts Pairs challenge #4

Another week has gone by so it's time to share what Debbie and I are doing this week......masking!  Got inspiration here:  Hero Arts Cardmaking Idea: Flying By To Say Hi  and here:  Hero Arts Cardmaking Idea: Thank You Teacher

Take a look at my card.  Unfortunately my printer isn't working so I couldn't scan it, had to take a picture with camera.  I'm not a very good photographer but I keep trying. 
I do like the way this card came out.  First I punched out a circle but used the negative of the punch out.  Added color with my stipple brushes, haven't used them in ages since I discovered blending tool with sponge.  Removed the negative or reverse mask and put the punched out circle mask over the colored sun.  Stippled some  'The Ranger Ink stonewash and stream Adirondack inks.  Oh yes, forget to tell you used Adirondack butterscotch and terra cotta inside the sun.  Ripped a small piece of Tim Holtz new music tissue tape and placed it on the right side of the sun.  Stamped Hero Arts bird just at the bottom of the sun and colored it in with Prisma color pencils.  Colored in some grass with some more of the Prisma color pencils then stamped Hero Arts dandelion three times and thinking of you with black ink.  On dark blue cardstock punched two corners with EK Success photo corner punch, layered this onto kraft cardstock note card. The stamped piece is on kraft cardstock, too. 
After you finished looking at mine please go visit Debbie Does Crafts to see what Debbie created.  enjoy!
