Vanilla Swirl

Our ferret Chester loved sleeping in circle so that his feet and tail touched his ears. He looked just like a vanilla cone.

This layout is my entry for Red Carpet Studio #94
The challenge was to use different shades of grey,
a touch of red
and a special technique.
 I had an assortment of cream and peach flowers that I inked with shades of grey. I also die-cut pine boughs from grey patterned paper. The border strip and the photo mat are each from a different grey as well as the hearts.
I chose masking for my technique.
I used the negative from cutting the pine boughs as my mask.
I laid it over the title and dabbed with pigment ink.
