MIM: Masking With Dies

Today's Make It Monday at PTI is to use a die as a mask.  I absolutely loved Lisa Johnson's example card.  It makes me want the Turning a New Leaf dies even more.  But I had to work with what I had.

I chose the Mat Stack 4 die and the Leaf B from leaf Prints.

Here is my card:

I started with the Mat Stack 4 die and sponged Sweet Blush ink over Sweet Blush CS.  Leaving the mask in place I stamped the tiny dots form Polka Dot Basics and a sentiment from Round & Round

After die cutting the largest bloom from Beautiful Blooms #1, I masked that with a circle punch and stamped the polka dotted jar filling from Friendship Jar around the edges. 

I also die cut Leaf B and used that to sponge 2 leaves onto Spring Moss CS.  I used the die cut leaf to also mask the two leaves from each other and sponged Ripe Avocado on the left side to give some definition to each leaf.   It didn't photograph very well tho :(

Thanks for stopping by!
