Masking challenge

Card: concord crush, marina mist
Ink: concord crush, marina mist
Stamp set: bliss
Other: concord crush 1/2" stitched-poly ribbon, dazzling diamonds

Over at Craft Room Challenge, it's all about masking... Here's my take on the challenge. This technique is soooo effective, and looks amazing! Thanks for the inspiration DT!

I loved how this card has come out (I tend to be bias with my own work, but isn't this always the case?!). The colours, masking, sponging and dazzling diamonds on the butterfly have all come together nicely... The photo doesn't do it justice, though - the middle square doesn't look "off balance" in real life, like it does in the photo. I think it might have been my poor photography skills... I'll definitely be trying this technique again!
