Direct case from Paulaponders

I needed a card for my stepfather's birthday and my masculine stamps are few and far between. I read Paulaponders blog every day and she had this beautiful card with instructions as to how to do a reverse mask and used Lovely as a Tree, which I happen to have and I had all the ink colors as well as the markers, so thought I would try it. This is how it turned out. It is very pretty in person and I think I did pretty good. I couldn't find a "Happy Birthday" stamp that would fit so used Gina K's Make a Wish and just used a marker to ink up the Happy Birthday on the stamp. This card is in my mailbox as I write this. I hope he likes it. I had fun making it.
Thanks for checking in.

This is really cool! I might have to try this -- I love the way the masking is exploded by the tree . . . very neat effect!
