Nestabilities circle. Using repositionable adhesive I placed the typing paper on the pink card front and using a Prismacolor pencil I made a line of color on the inside of the hole. Next I softened the edges using a paper stump with Gamsol. I stamped the Hero Arts girl in the center of the circle opening with black Memories ink and likewise colored her with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. Next I removed the mask with the hole and placed the "typing paper circle" over the colored "hole". I stamped the Hero Arts oriental flower border so it would resemble the two necessary elements on the CPS sketch. I proceeded to color them as above. Finally I stamped the Rubber Stampede Posh Impressions cherry blossoms around the card front using Versamark ink and then embossed those images with clear embossing powder. I think it sort of looks like a window card without a real window. This sketch would have been very easy if I had cut and pasted to create the three necessary elements, but doing it all by stamping and masking made it into a "real challenge".
