Technique challenge - Masking

I did this for the next technique challenge over at ASB. I really struggled with this card! It's one of those that just didn't want to come together - no matter what I did.

The center daisy is masked - which is the challenge - and then I worked the daisies into the other panels. So, I get this all done (except for the sentiment and the top right hand daisy) and it's sitting on my work space. I'm on to the next project - I look down and what do I see??? A big black smudge of ink in the top right corner of this card. GRRR! Now, I'm about to throw this in the trash - but thought, Hmmm, how can I save this one? I stamped another two daisies, cut them out and popped them up to cover the ink spot! Whipper Snapper Stamps has this stamp saying (which I almost used on this card!) "There are no mistakes in stamping, only embellishment opportunities" - you can see the stamp here. Can you say stamping MacGyver!

By the way, if you head over to A Shade of Blue, you will see one of my cards that won their spring stamping contest! Woo Hoo! I never win anything - so this was really exciting!

Stamps - Daisy and back ground stamp from TAC, sentiment is from Studio G
