Masking Technique

Today I finally got busy and finished the "masking technique" card I've had on my craft table for over a week now. The SweetStamps challenge blog has weekly challenges and monthly challenges...the monthly ones are always a "technique" challenge. I really like that because I have tried several new things already! 
This month the technique is MASKING. I've done this before but this time I did it very carefully and precisely...and I like how it turned out! What  do you think?

This little girl is one of my favorite Bildmalarna stamps and I masked her and stamped the fence background twice...once on each side to make a long enough fence. I colored everything except the chicks with Memento, Spectrum Noir and ProMarker markers...the chicks I had to use colored pencil.

I recently won the great little Craft-Dee Bowz bow-maker so I used that to make my lovely little bow! And it works great! Very good instructions!

So here's my list of ingredients:
Spelbinders dies- "Standard Circles Lg", "Labels 4", "Fleur de Lis Squares"
Stamps- Bildmalarna "Mimosa-Chicken", CDS "Wistful Wishes", Stampcraft "Fence"
Craft-Dee Bowz bow-maker
Markers - ProMarkers "aquas", Memento "greens & tans", Spectrum Noir "flesh tones"
Ink- Memento "Tuxedo Black", Studio G "Lt Brown"
Tsukineko small dauber
Border punch- Martha Stewart  "Doily"
Card stock and ribbon...from my stash!

Challenges: - August "Masking Technique" - #97 Anything Goes - Sept. Challenge: Anything Goes w/handmade bow - #215 Perfect Pets - #171 Something *Tweet*
