Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 22 - Masking

Its my fav time of the week, its Saturday and time for a new Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. This weeks theme has been set by the wonderful Claire and she is asking us to do some masking on our creations this week. I've never masked before and didn't have a scooby what to do but thanks to some fab advice from my DT buddies I now know how to mask up an image for stamping. I've used a cute PB stamp for the foreground, I then masked him off and used the circular scroll stamp from Polly Craft for the bit behind my kitty. Design papers are K&Co, Sparkly Sweet, the sentiment is a rub-on and the flowers and gems are all from my stash. Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog today to see who has won February's prize of £20 to spend in the Secret Crafter shop. TFL :)

PS: Is anyone else confused by the 'Gorjuss' blog headers and backgrounds that are appearing on everyone's blogs? I know I am......I keep forgetting whose blog I am lol!
