I got a chance to play a bit on Monday. With two different challenges on my mind, Less is More's One Layer Card with Music Challenge and Just Us Girl's Masking Challenge, I started with one idea and ended up with four different masked cards.

I started with a vague notion of a cat sitting on a wall, so I stamped my fav cat from my RRD Just Sayin' plate onto the card with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then masked off the cat and a section of card to become "the wall".  Once I had the section masked off, I sponged on some Antique Linen distress ink (Ranger).   Over that I stamped my sequin waste background from Behind the Scenes with the same ink.  I finished with my handwritten music background from the same collection, stamped using Vintage Photo distress ink.

Once this strip was completed, I removed the masks and colored the cat in with copic markers.  I stamped the sentiment, "Did You Hear" also from the Just Sayin' plate with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. 

Stamps: cat and sentiment from Just Sayin'; sequin waste and
handwritten music background from Behind the Scenes (Rogue Redhead Designs)

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Less is More - One Layer Music

Just Us Girls - Masking

Sugar Creek Hollow - Feathers and Fur

Hope you get a bit of time to let your creativity take you where it will!  Come back and see the other cards I made over the next week or so.
