AAA Cards Challenge #132: up to 1/3 + masking, with video

This fortnight our sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays and our theme is use up to one third and as an added option, use masking.

I used masking to  protect 2/3 of my card whilst I was inkblending Distresss Oxides (Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid lagoon and Tumbled glass). I  made the area smaller and 1/3, just so I could stamp my sentiment in the same 1/3 area.

For the sentiment I've used CAS-ual Fridays set called Heartfelt sayings, and I just love the little hearts dotted around the sentiment.

For the Strip I've used Creative expressions stamp  Secret Woodland and I stamped it with Versafine Onyx black ink, just as the Sentiment. Heat set it to be sure, then splattered some Midas Touch out of a Nuvo Shimmer pen onto the scene.Added three golden rhinestones, I wish I had heart shaped golden ones.

For the second card and video I've used Oxide Dusty Concord and Versamagic SPring pansy and Eggplant, and the stamp is Magical Meadow also Creative Expressions and I kept the Sentiment the same from CAS-ual Fridays.
For a chance to win the $25 giftcard to CAS-ual Fridays please play along with our challenge.
