Craft-Room Challenge, Masking.

Thank you everyone for entering the White On White Challenge, all the entries were fabulous.
The latest Craft-Room challenge is Masking and it has been chosen by Esther. You can use ready made masks, stamping or both.
Don't forget to display the Craft-Room logo with a link to the shop to be eligible to enter the draw for a £10 Craft-Room voucher.
Here is my sample.

I coloured a piece of white card with dried marigold and antique linen Distress ink then stamped the clock, bicycle, hand and men with black Archival ink, I then masked the four images. I stamped various bits and bobs onto the card and distressed the edges, then I went round the card with faded jeans and vintage photo Distress ink. When I removed the masks I took out some of the background colour from the images with a water brush to make them a bit lighter. I used some cogs and chain to embellish, then I coloured the edges of a white card blank with vintage photo and attached the decorated card to it.
All the stamps that I used are Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps except for the Inkadinkado happy birthday.
I do hope you will visit the Craft-Room Challenge Blog to look at the Design Teams fabulous samples and then enter the challenge.

I'm entering this in the Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog Men/All Things Male Themed  Challenge.
