Stampin'B Challenge - Pink Thank You

As hostess for this week's Stampin'B challenge, Emily wanted us to make a thank you card using spring colors -- one of which had to be pink. I colored my Mark's Finest Papers' gerber daisies using Copic markers in several shades of pink. One of my favorite techniques is Reverse Masking. I like the way it can highlight your image.

I cut out the daisies using a Labels Eleven nestie and mounted it on some Basic Grey Two Scoops DP. The strip down the side was made with a Martha Stewart border punch. It's not quite a CAS card, but it is flat and shouldn't take any extra postage.

Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers - Greet the Day with Gerber
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Mustard Seed
Paper: Mark's Finest Papers Snow Storm Smooth, Basic Grey Two Scoops DP
Accessories: Labels Eleven Nestabilities, Martha Stewart border punch, Copic markers (R11, R12, R14, BG93, BG96)
