MIX5 Masked Happy Birthday

It’s time for a new Mix-Ability (MIX5) Challenge on Splitcoast!
The challenge is Masquerade – use a masking technique.
Here is how I created my background:
To make my masked background I tore the edges of two long Post-it notes and applied them to the center of my card (diagonally). Stamp Chickenwire CAC with Clearsnap Butterscotch Colorbox Fluid  Chalk Ink.
Before removing the mask, sponge edges with Clearsnap Chestnut Roan Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink.
This is what it looks like after the mask is removed.


Dies/stamps: Impression Obsession (CC155 Chicken Wire, CL445 Banners & Greetings, DIE071-I Spiral Daisy, DIE059-N Fancy Butterfly)
Papers: The Paper Loft
Ink: Clearsnap Colorbox Fluid Chalk inks (Butterscotch, Chestnut Roan,
other: sponge, pearl, acrylic paint, Post-it notes, ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon
