New Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge - World Wildlife

We've got a new challenge today on the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge and this week our theme is 'world wildlife' - for all the details about the challenge, have a look here on the challenge blog.

My card was made for a demo I did yesterday at the stamping club I belong to.  I was asked to demonstrate masking and I decided to include reverse masking together with the more traditional type of masking.

I die cut an oval from a piece of card, placed this over a square and white card and then applied three shades of Distress Inks through the aperture.  I used a circle die cut from a post-it note for the sun.

Finally I stamped 'Silhouette Elephants' from Little Claire over the inked oval, keeping the mask in place.  The stamp can be found here on the Little Claire website.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
