Member Challenge the DTs of Colorful Creations Challenge

Hi, everyone!  I've taken a break for the past month from joining much challenges at Colorful Creations.  To make-up, I've joined a challenge wherein we members host a challenge for the Design Team to participate and work on for the whole month of September 2011.  The challenge is named by the CC's DTs as "Member Challenge US"

Without further ado, my challenge goes like this: 

I would like to share with you my fascination with (1) scrapbooking technique.  And that is masking.  I have never tried it before and still have to assemble and acquire the needed materials for it.  And just recently I was lucky to come across a mask being sold.  Thus, for my challenge, I’ll be requiring this technique to be used.  This is the 1st time I’m using the said technique too.  Below are the requirements of the challenge for Colorful Creations Design Team:


Technique to be Used:
  • 1.      Masking
Tools to be Used (at the least):
  • 1.      Decorative Scissors or Punches
Supplies to be Used (at the least):
  • 1.      Paint or Glimmer Mist
  • 2.      Embellishments
  • 3.      Alphabets
Can be Inspired by: 
  • 1.      Any sketch of your choice
Below is my sample layout:

SUPPLIES:  Paper: Star Paper Corp., Alphabet: American Craft, Chipboard: Dusty Attic, Mask:  Heidi Swapp, Sticker Quotes: Hallmark, Trim: Webster’s Pages, Journaling Pen: Parker, Paint: Acrylic Colour, TOOLS: Punch: Martha Stewart.
