"Marsh Silhouettes"

The mini stamp set we have for you this month is
"Lilly of the Valley"                                          

 I want to tell you what technique I will be showcasing for the May blog hop ..... drum roll...pppprumppadumadum....faux layers and masking sections.  sorry don't know the fancy names that have been given to this technique but I'm sure you will know once you see my cards. 

My first card (blue tones) is created using only the stamp set Marsh Birds but my other two cards are a combination of Marsh Birds and Marsh Silhouettes...these two sets work great together.

Please continue on to Janine's  blog to see what she has in store for you.  Don't forget to leave comments along your journey for a chance to be included in our drawing.  See you tomorrow.
