Just Us Girls #175 - Masking Technique

JUGS175 photo JUGS175picA.jpg

This week's challenge is brought to us by Lisa and she has challenged us to use any type of masking technique.  I used basic masking and if you need a tutorial you can find it here.

I pulled out my Buckets of Love set from There She Goes and masked off the bucket so the heart cluster fit into it perfectly.  Coloured the image with Twinkling H2Os and used this wonderful Fab Friday sketch to put the card together.

For some inspiration to get you going, just hop on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team has created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be selected as Chick of the Week.  

The kids had a Prerosional Day on Friday and our new, provincial Family Day holiday falls on Monday, so it's a four day weekend for us.  We're off to the soccer pitch for my son's game on Saturday (fingers crossed for a win as they are in the playoffs), I'll be teaching the grade 5/6 Sunday School class this weekend, and then we will be doing some sort of fun, family activity (yet to be determined) on Monday to celebrate Family Day together :) 
 
Have a great weekend!  Back on Monday with my Mojo Monday card.

Very pretty card! Love that bucket brimming with hearts! What a fun holiday for all of you! Sounds like a fun-filled weekend! If you need any help with those 5th graders, let me know! I have many tricks up my sleeve after being a 5th grade teacher for so long! LOL!

So sweet, Marisa!

Masking is something I don't often do anymore. Mostly because I have little patience...lol Not to mention scissors and I don't get along too well...lol

Hope you have a FABULOUS weekend!

Great job masking this adorable image, Marisa. :) Reminds me of an older SU set that has a bucket and apples. Have to get that out sometime soon!

Enjoy your weekend!
