I used a lot of masks in this project! At first I was a bit disappointed that the ink had seeped under some of them a bit but then I decided I quite liked the effect. I stamped the words first and then masked them off. Placing the inner part of the lady stencil on the card I then stamped the shops. These were then masked as well. For my background I used the ink that was left on the poly bag after doing the background for the calendar challenge. Ingenious or what? After removing all the masks I placed the outer part of the stencil in place and used my stencil brushes to create the lady. I used one of the house stamps to give her dress an abstract pattern. I used coloured pencils on the shops and a fine liner to outline my lady and give her some curly hair - she looked a bit weird without it.
