Inkspirational #129

Hi All

We have a new challenge at Inkspirational. It is our word prompt challenge and the word is:


I have used 'connect' as a verb-being associated with a group of like minded people (yes I used the dictionary!)

This card is for a crafty friend across the miles:

I am not so hot at masking but I got the idea for this card when I saw Jane's card here in January. I liked her super CAS version of masking and thought this was such a clever way to use masking for those of us who are not really into complicated masking!

The London Skyline is from Happy Little Stamper-Wish You Were Here stamp set. The sun ray stamp is from Visible Images (that snowflake die I use for so many images). I just stamped the sky line then masked off below this and stamped the sun rays so the bottom half didn't  stamp....nice and easy masking!

Our DT have other inspiring ways to use 'connect' to create. Take a look here and then get inky x

I will enter this into:


  1. Great masking and theme of the card, I also love the layout! Well done hon! xxx

  2. Fantastic result achieved with masking! Love the sun ray detail and how it adds color to your design.

  3. Love this card....simple , classy and it says it all!

  4. Fabulous card Sandie. Love how you've got the beautiful sun rays behind the cityscape. xx

  5. I like the combo of the sunburst and cityscape. Very cool! I have been meaning to ask you what kind of ink you use. I notice that your yellow ink in particular has a bit of a sheen/shimmer to it. It gives it something extra! Great take on the challenge!
