Quick and Easy Masked Card

I've had to make a few super quick cards recently, and there is nothing quicker for me than inking and stamping cos it means I don't have to faff about finding co-ordinating papers, matting and layering and colouring! It's not that I'm lazy - well maybe it is :/ LOL, but it is really time consuming and when you're in a hurry rummaging through piles of stash is the last thing I want to do!


I stamped the butterflies and then masked them before creating a Post It Note frame. I blended Distress Inks in the frame, gave it spritz of Glimmer Mist and then removed the masks. To finish I quickly coloured the butterflies with Promarkers and then added some Stickles to the edge of the wings and the frame and stamped a sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today.
