Mask It! - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I am having a much needed few days off work starting today & have several crafty projects on the go which I am itching to get finished.
Thanks to some lovely customers my little Etsy shop has been very busy of late so hopefully I will have some new creations to restock it again very soon :)

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
there are several ways you can create a mask, by simply tearing paper you can create hills and valleys, die cutting a shape, using a stencil or masking fluid or simply stamping an image onto scratch paper and cutting around it. The possibilities are almost endless! We will be looking forward to seeing what technique you use to create your project!

 This week my lovely teamies & I are featuring some gorgeous 
   goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.

As you can see for today's DT card I have gone very CAS and masked together some stamps from Altenew's beautiful Botanical Garden stamp set.

I have stamped onto Simon's copic friendly card stock & used a lovely sentiment from Simon's Lila's Heart stamp set. 
Usually when I mask stamps I always use a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig but as I didn't need to be so precise with the placement of these pretty flowers so I didn't use it for the image, but as I was stamping my sentiment directly onto my card I used it to make sure it was perfectly lined up & I didn't end up with a wonky sentiment!

The copic colours I've used are -
G43, G40, YGO6, YG63 & YR23, YR21, YR20, YR04.
I also added a few other green copics but didn't write them down I'm sorry to say.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
