The Mask

Here's my card for the Less is More Challenge week 115 - a ONE LAYER card inspired by a FILM.

This is a great theme but what to do.  I did think of Diamonds are Forever but I think I've overdone diamonds recently (see last 11 posts!!).  My children suggested Startrek: Deep Space Nine and then Mary Poppins - I was struggling to see how I could change my Brolly Man stamp into Mary Poppins.  So then I thought The Colour Purple - my first attempt was Dusty Concord but that went in the bin, so I've chosen The Mask and used green!!

I masked off the top half of the card and then blended Mowed Lawn Distress Ink through a flowery That Special Touch mask.  I've just added a Hero Arts sentiment and dragonfly from the same set.

No idea why I chose The Mask, other than masking is a good technique for one layer cards.  I hate the film and the actor...whose name escapes me ...and I hate him in Ace ventura too!!  Never mind, the sun is out and Spring may be on it's way!!   Thanks for looking!!


  1. Is it Jim Carey, or something like that - I am with you, don't really like the idea of the film either... but I love your gorgeous card, the masking is beautiful and the sentiment is perfect! Hugs, Anne x

  2. Great idea for the card even if you are not keen on the film. i love the green with the flowers. x

  3. This is clever Elaine, that green is fab. I'm with you on Jim Carrey - can't stand him! Lol xx

  4. I like your card, the green colour and the dragonfly too!

  5. Interesting connection Elaine!
    Great LIM card
