LIM week 163 - Wishing you the best

Hi everyone! Here is my take on this weeks challenge over at Less Is More. It's theme week and the challenge is masking/stenciling. Well, I did both on this card.

I cut out the flowers and leaf out of some acetate to act as my stencil. I also used the flower shape as a mask so that I could sponge in the leaves.

Sentiment and dragonfly stamp is from the set Wishing you from PTI. I added some blue glitter from Denami onto the wings of the dragonfly so that it looked sorta translucent.

After sponging on the pink lemonade ink I decided that the flowers needed a center. I stamped off the black ink once onto a piece of scratch paper so that it wouldn't be so dark. The flower stamp is again from PTI.

This ended up being a one layer card, by the way. thanks for stopping by!
