A couple of my DBIL’s have birthdays in March, and clean and simple always seems to work for the guys.

The two masks for stippling were made using a deckle ruler for one and a Nestabilities Deckled Mega Rectangle Die for the other.

Love the effect.. just something a little different from the usual straight edge mask.

Thanks for dropping by today.  Happy Crafting!
