I used my Big Shot to die-cut the shape of my card, using the largest Nestabilities Labels Two die.
I used my Big Shot to die-cut the second-largest Labels Two shape from the acetate sheet - this is my mask which I placed over top of my Whisper White card. I stamped the main image in Basic Gray ink inside the label cut-out and embossed it with clear. I stamped the image again onto a post-it note and cut out the main flowers to mask my main image. I used masking fluid to mask the small flowers.
Once the masking fluid was dry, I stamped the En Francais stamp in Basic Gray over top and then sponged more Basic Gray ink around the edges (reverse masking). I removed the acetate mask, post-it note masks and masking fluid.
I colored in the flowers with Stampin' Write markers and blender pen (watercoloring with blender pens ... or ... marker layering technique).
