Simple stamping techniques.

Back again and today simple stamping techniques using masking and layering. 

For this card I have used Stamps from Marion Emberson Birds and trees, It's all in the words, Love story script and Just because.  I have used Archival black and Distress ink Fired brick and the Spellbinder die is Teardrop circles.  The button is from my stash.
I first stamped the black frame and created a mask for it, covering it, then made another outer mask before stamping with the red and script background stamp.  To finish I added the leaves and sentiment then the flower and threaded button.  

Today my eldest has his end of term parade so I'm off to watch that this afternoon, the forcast is rain, rain and more rain so please pray for sunshine.  It ain't much fun on parade when it's raining and it's even less fun getting wet watching.
