This months challenge over on the Tando blog is called 'Feel the Heat' so I had a play with a mask, some inks and Tando butterflies for it.
For my label mask I used the left over part of a die cut tag that I taped onto my card. I then used my distress inks, starting with the lightest colour first and at the bottom moving to the red at the top, using a make-up sponge to add the colour. I then used a gel pen to outline the shape - I traced around the mask a couple of times, moving it slightly to get the shadowy effect. I then used a couple of butterflies and inked them black and stamped Happy Birthday at the bottom. A really quick and easy card to make but I love the silhouette effect that it gives.
