No - not the stamper's kind of masking.  Coronavirus masking. :) 
I made about 20 of these -- I thought they would be a nice pick-me-up for family and friends.  I used the stencil and colored with distress inks, using blender brushes.  Then I went over the stenciled parts with clear, glossy embossing paste.  The mask was hand cut and scored so it would open. 
I'm putting this in the following challenges:
Happy Little Stampers -
Stamplorations - May Stencil Challenge

Just Us Girls - anyone wearing a mask is a hero - protecting others nearby.  


  • Stencil - by Plaid (very old)
  • Stamps - bunny, and sentiments by Honey Bee; virus by Paper Smooches
  • Die - circle by Honey Bee; Mask - by Stephen, that's my hubby, he made the template
One of my very best friend's husband has fixed his welcome sign. It makes me smile.  
Please practice social distancing.  And wear your mask in public spaces.  
Thank you for taking a look.  Until next time: Stay safe, stay well.
