Timeless Tuesday #110 - The Mask


Our Timeless Tuesday challenge this week is being hosted by Makiko, and she wants you to put on your mask! :) Well, do some masking with your stamped images... is that clearer? Stop on over at the Flourishes blog for all the challenge details, and to enter your masked creation! And don't forget... review the rules for entering the challenge! You must create a card using the challenge specifications, but you also must leave comments for the designers to be qualified. The number of entries each week are not the same as the number of comments so I assume people are not realizing the new rule that went into effect last month!

For my card, I chose to use the Mix 'n Mugs stamp set, because no matter what mug you choose you still have to mask whatever image you choose to put in the mug, too. I paired the image with some new Crate Paper designer paper, and tore a page out of an old, never-used cookbook I found when cleaning out some drawers in my kitchen last weekend. I always love how pages from an old book look on a card, and thought why not use a recipe from a cookbook!?The other Flourishes Bloggers have some great inspiration for you today so please be sure to stop by their blogs!

How grand, Tammy! With all this indoor weather, a warm kitchen makes great sense. Of course, you choose some heated colors to encourage the rewarding action. Tasteful card.
Keep Looking UP!

This is so gorgeous. I love the colour palette and something I will learn from this is your angled papers. I'm really annul at this and centre everything it kills me to offset things!
