Less is More - Week 163 - Masking or stencilling

Here I am again after a ridiculously busy week!  There were some totally stunning one layer cards for LIM this week, I'm getting very into Pinterest and have pinned quite a few for future inspiration.  This week at LIM we would like to see you use Masking or Stencilling on your card, not forgetting that all-important white space.

My card is very straightforward, I have used Post-Its to mask off my card, leaving an off-centre panel which I inked with Adirondack Lake Mist.  I overstamped with the same ink, using a JOFY stamp, then added a Stampin' Up Lovely as a Tree Christmas tree in Versafine Olympia Green, stamped a second time without re-inking.  The tiny sentiment from Inkylicious has ended up in the bin after this card, there's a mark across the "h" as though a hair is stuck on the stamp :(.  Hmm...  could have left a bit more white space on this one...

I love this card, and you are doing what I should be doing, not only creating fabulous cards when you are busy but getting ahead for Christmas.
