Masking a Cute Scene

Hello friends!
I am snucking in to share another card I made with the Tiny Ninja  (by Mama Elephant) set in Masterpiece Box. Many have expressed how much they love this set with their comments during the blog hop. I am one of them, too. I am not huge on creating cutesy cards. However, once in a while, a stamp set like this can make you want to think and play. 
...and that is a very "good thing",  as Martha would say. 
To create the action, I stamped and clear-emboss the black ninja image. Once it's embossed, I stamped the image on a piece of paper (not too thick, not too thin) and cut it out as the mask. With that mask (covering the black image), I worked my way and stamped two more colors.

you snuck your way into my heart
The colors of the tiny ninjas are based on the pattern paper. While I was at it, I stamped the colorful sentiment with MISTI. This Tiny Ninja set is slated to be released as an individual set in October.
Well, that's it, folks! Thanks for stopping by!

Totally adorable. Love this unique and adorable set...especially, after seeing how you made it look as though he/she is sneaking across the card. Also love that you multi-colored the sentiment.
