Sending Birthday Wishes

The second challenge for the guest designer spot is posted at StampTV, and I'm going to give it a shot!
The challenge is to use a mask.
Here's my first card for the challenge:

Supplies:  Gina K. Designs 'The Northwoods' by Theresa Momber, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury White Cardstock, Dimensional Foam (Michael's).

To begin, a circle was punched out of the masking paper, and placed on the cardstock.  Squeezed Lemonade ink was daubered into the circle, and the outer mask was then removed.  The circle mask was added, and I then began using Peeled Paint, Old Paper, and Tumbled Glass to create the background.

Once the background was finished, the forward most trees in the lower left and right hand corners were stamped with "Peeled Paint". I made a mask of  each tree, cut them out, and placed them over the stamped trees. The next step was to stamp directly onto the mask with each tree, using "Old Paper".  Each time I stamped, I first sponge daubered a bit of "Rusty Hinge" on the tree trunks.
The two deer were stamped in "Rusty Hinge" also.

This is such a lovely stamp set, that I debated on embellishments, finally deciding to let the focal panel speak for itself.  The panel was placed on the card front with dimensional squares.

Thanks so much for dropping by!
Have a good evening,

Patti J.
