This creation is for the LIM challenge this week which is masking. Well, I have been swooning over the inking styles of Chrissie Stokes, Heather Telford and Theresa Momber for a while. They often involve masking and sponging, brayering or dusting. The incredible talent of the aforementioned inkers has been a little daunting to me. Recently, my dear friend Jenny sent me a wonderful gift of Ink Dusters from the UK. Chrissie had mentioned them in a couple of her fabulous inky posts, and I really wanted to try them. When I saw this week's LIM challenge, I decided to jump in head first. Out came my Ink Dusters and some distress inks, some masking paper, and then I went over to THIS tutorial from Theresa Momber for a little help and confidence boost. This card is the result. Hey! I can do this! I really like the way this turned out, and now I am hooked.
