Today's card.......
Having fun with Camp Create and the MFT Challenge
and today's challenge for me is Masking......
After die cutting the London Skyline out of masking paper 
I attached it to CS to use as a mask.
I have blended a few shades of blue inks for the sky and reds for the Moon.
I edged the skyline with red to give a 3D effect.
I removed the mask and again blended the same colours at the bottom.
The hello sentiment was also die cut and used as a mask.
I finished with stamping and embossing the I miss you sentiment and
flicking water to represent water...The river Thames.
The card ended up being on one layer.
I enjoyed using the die cut as a mask instead of using the actual die cut.

I am enjoying participating in the MFT Camp Create Challenge 
and chose the colours to enter The MFT Color Challenge too.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

The skyline is just amazing, clever you for your patience in cutting it out so perfectly. Once again, I would have just presumed that you had used a stencil to create this effect. I love how you've shaded above the Skyline to match the moon. Such a fabulous colour combination and a perfect card! Sandra X
