A little like Wedgewood

When the post man delivered the post today it included some of the new masks from Tando.   They are even better than expected and of course had to have a play right away.    So first thing will they emboss what else would you do with a mask LOL.  Took a bit of fiddling to get the right sandwich but this is card stock.   Masks are available from Craft-Room and other stockists.

The card is my entry to this week's Less is More which a a single layer card with embossing.   Using blue card stamped and heat embossed the La Blanche stamp in white then tinted skin tone over the top.   Fancy this brings Wedgwood to mind.   The card was then embossed with the mask giving this violinist a musical background that is not over intrusive.
