Bloom by Jen Timko | Grow in Faith Stamp by Joy Clair, Christmas Nativity by Joy Clair, MISTI by My Sweet PetuniaI’m continuing on my spring theme today with this sweet little flower set called Grow in Faith.  I just love all the little flowers in the set but thought it would be fun to but them in the watering pail.  There was a bit of masking for this card.  First, I stamped the pail using Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  Then I put down my mask over the pail.  I pulled this wooden image from the Christmas Nativity set (part of a stable) to create a table for the flowers.  With mask safely in place, I stamped the first (top) board, then I masked that and stamped the second one.  The MISTI takes away all the fear on making mistakes…and no starting over if there is incomplete stamping!  I do find that on masking projects I always need to stamp twice.  Once those were done, I stamped the flowers (with the pail mask still in place).  Notice that I had cut the little top part off the pail mask so that the flower appear to be in the pail.

So after all that was done, I pulled off all the masks and YAY!!  There is always a bit of a moment of holding your breath with masking…at least for me.  I stamped the sentiment and then colored the images using Copic markers.  Such a sweet little card!
