For my next masked creation I used the new Multi Step Little Lambs along with Multi Step Bitty Tulip Bouquet and 3 Step Honey Bunny.
I'll also share a little trick I use when stamping images like this lamb which need to be very light in color but can be difficult to see! I always stamp them on white paper and then mask them to add a stamped and/or sponged background. It really helps define the image and made it stand out on the card. The grass was stamped over the masked lamb and then the sky was sponged with SU Bashful Blue before adding the tulips.
