MFT Camp Create 2 Magnificent Masking Challenge

I've got an over the top cute card today.  I'm entering it in My Favorite Things Camp Create 2 Magnificent Masking Challenge.  The idea is to create a card using the masking technique.  This is not the first time I've done this but I wanted to go outside my comfort zone and make it more challenging.  


I started by stamping the Sunflower Sweetheart girl image on a piece of Bristol smooth white cardstock.  I stamped the image again on a piece of masking paper and fussy cut her out.  The masking paper has a thin release sheet that peels off and you lay it over your stamped image.  When I did this I had a surface that I could ink on and not worry about sunflower girl getting messy.  


I thought it was appropriate to use Tim Holtz's Ray stencil and several Distress inks to make a sunshine background.  I am happy I decided to extend the rays all around her and not just at the top.  When I removed the stamped mask I had her outline and then used Copic markers to color her.  I also had to cover her with a clear Wink of Stella pen to enhance her sparkle.  


I used a foam panel to pop her up from the main card base.  I also love the red card stock I used as it brings out the red in her dress.  I think she's beyond adorable.  I've got one more challenge to enter at MFT.  The ideas are already flowing!
