A couple one layer cards...and a two layer card...

Posting my OLW cards really quickly--I'm so behind in posting my cards from this weekend and don't want to miss deadlines! The challenge this week is called Two by Two Plus Masking. Oh, Susan. I LOVE the way you challenge me!!! Masking is NOT my forte. I do not enjoy it. I do not enjoy cutting things out. I do it, but I do not like it!!! Okay, done with my whining...

Here's the first card I made and detail~


I made the mistake of stamping my image to mask with on thicker cardstock, hence the weird white space between the leaves. Also, the colors are too dark for my mood--I want SPRING! So, I redid the card. In a different layout and with purple and green--my favorite colors right now! ;)

Here's the second card and detail (it's two layers...I'll explain)~


Yes. Not a one layer card. Stamped the sentiment a little bit off. And even if others cannot tell, I COULD! So I covered it up with a punched out sentiment. Then I redid it as a true one layer card...

Here it is with detail~


FINALLY. Perfection! Thank you, Susan, for another challenging challenge! Love me some OLW! Happy stamping, y'all! :)

I found it to be an almost impossible challenge for me!! Love what you ended up with...it's perfect. As for that first one, I've found that when I cut out a mask, if I cut it out slightly "inside" the lines, I don't end up with the white space (as has happened many times before! LOL!) As for CASing my card...you go for it, girl!! You'll have to let me know when you do, so I can pop over and see it!
