Hello crafty friends! Welcome and thanks for popping in!
The photo credit for CI#97 is a personal photo by Phil Winterton from Gunnedah NSW, who is a friend of fellow CIC Crew Member Denita Wright-Smee and our Guest Designer is the very talented Jane Martin. Please go and check out Jane's amazing card over on our Colour INKspiration's Facebook Page.
The card I have for you today was inspired by Eileen Godwin and uses a masking technique along with a little stencilling before stamping your image over the top. I used a little Basic Gray ink for my stencilling which is still withing Challenge Rules.

- Tools: Basic Pattern Decorative Masks, Blending Brushes, Stamparatus, Paper Trimmer

Assembling the Card:
I like to squish my ink pad so that the ink transfers to the lid. I pick up my ink from here as I'm concerned with the long term effects of using the Blending Brushes directly on the stamp pads. I would rather err on the side of caution.
Use a different Post-It Note for each colour to avoid contaminating your colours.
Remove the Post-It notes.
Take the damask pattern mask and apply Basic Gray ink over the whole area.
If you would rather your stencilling to stay within the triangle, you can leave your Post-It Notes on until after this step.
Stamp your image and sentiment.
I would recommend a heavier outlined stamp for your image for the best results
