LIM week 59-masking

I've only just got around to making my card for this week's challenge on Less is More as I have been away in Devon, only got back yesterday. A friend invited me to go down and stay in a house she has there and we had a lovely time. She showed me the sights and we visited her friends and relations and also went to see Fishermen's Friends from Port Isaac who were playing in Exeter, they were truly wonderful. I am afraid one day I was nodding in the car going back to the house as I was tired, my friend on the other hand mowed the lawn when we returned whilst I napped and she is 14 years older than me! I had a hard time keeping up with her.
Anyway, onto the card. I used Clarity stamps. First I masked the outside of the vase and used a "Charles Rennie Mackintosh" inspired stamp to give the pattern to the vase. Then I masked the vase and put the flowers into the vase. I've also put a shadow around part of the vase with a fleximarker.
I'd also like to enter the card into the challenge at Ooh La La - thank you cards.
I'm sorry if I don't get around to commenting this week, I have a lot on and am meeting myself coming back at the moment! I am going to be involved in something at the weekend which is hopefully going to see me as a part of an entry into the Guinness Book of Records- but I can't reveal more than that at the moment.

Devon eh? Sounds fabulous. I'd like a friend who lives in Cornwall, Devon or even abroad. lol... I seriously need to get away.

Love the card and the techniques used, not sure that I've ever done masking but I know i'd like to. I do think that Clarity stamps are a bit expensive though...

I'll look out for you saying what you were doing with regards to the Guiness Book of World Records... I need to use the links in my side bar more - which is something i'm really bad at. I'm going to have a look at some of your other stuff to catch up now.

Would love to see you soon and catch up - but we need quite a lot of hours!!!

Big hugs
