Jazz up your Masked Image

Have you all tried masking using Tim Holtz's idea-ology masking templates? They are so easy to use and you could never fail in getting an amazing masked image.

But what else you could do to jazz up the masked image? You could definitely doodle on it or to make it even more fun, try cutting out part of the masked image to create details within the masked image. Later, layer another piece of pattern paper below it. You could also add some Stickles to bling it up.

In my sample above, I've done a masking using Tim Holtz's flourish masking template. Later, I've cut out circles and some parts of the masked image. Then, I've added a light blue blingy pattern paper under it. Isn't this cool? Try it!
