Masked Bird

I have been wanting to try this forever, using the negative space out of one of my Cricut cuts to use as a mask, so I finally did it. I used a bird image from Home Decor Cricut cartridge as my mask and sponged Tattered Rose Distress ink into the space. So neat to lift off the mask and see the perfect image. I then took one of my favorite Cornish Heritage Farms sets, Beautiful from the Rummage Bin and stamped the swirls on the bird and a branch for him to sit on. The sentiment is from PTI. I am really happy about how this came out and will be doing it again soon:) What do you think?
