This week I have been dabbling at making masks with my vinyl for inking and also designing frames with my silhouette software.

I started by tracing and cutting a birch tree stencil and applying it to my card.  I then dusted over with adirondack inks and then started to remove the vinyl, which actually came off very easily.

This colour combo was inspired by this months theme of 'Spring' at Lavinia Stamps

I then grabbed my Lavinia stamps and added orchids, vines, fairy Felicty and tiny flowers.

At this point I decided I would like to frame it in black and grabbed some leaves from the sil store and a rose clipart I had traced, merged them together to create a frame.

I really liked the look so I made a couple more in different styles and colours, here is one where the main image is part of the frame.
