More Masking

I am just loving the black stamped images by Crafty Secrets. Created with another masking technique, the simplicity of the background adds dimension to the images.

I used some silver thread that I have had for YEARS, but as most crafters, years is not all that long, is it?

Liquid Glass by CTMH was used on the hearts to add more dimension. I added a bit of red Prismacolor Marker as an accent. Tiny metal gems from Michael's are used in the bitten off corners, where I used a circle punch to bite them off.

The b&w patterned paper is from a Christmas paper stack by MME.
