|Left-hand card uses overlay technique, right-hand card uses masking technique|
Another second post for the day!
Inspired by this weeks Colour Splash palette at The Play Date Cafe, and CAS theme at The Pink Elephant Challenges, I thought I would try masking as I have not yet used this technique, other than to stamp sentiments. To show you a comparison, the left-hand card shown above has been stamped using overlay rather than masking (up-side-down music and all LOL!), and whilst you can achieve some really amazing effects using this technique, I felt that masking would achieve more of the look I was after.
If you have not yet tried masking - you should give it a go! All you need to do is to stamp the image you want as the foreground onto a scrap piece of paper (many people recommend you stamp on post-it-notes and incorporate the sticky end to enable you to position your stamped image on the card more easily). Once you have done this, "fussy cut" around the outside of your image, then temporarily adhere the stamped image to your card in the correct position. Stamp the background image (in this case the Kaisercraft music stamp) across the top of your temporary image, I stamped this in Momento Black Ink. Then remove your temporary image (in this case the Prima butterfly stamp). Stamp your foreground image in the space left when you remove the temporary stamped image, I stamped this in Memories Artprint Brown Ink. Finally I stamped this gorgeous sentiment from My Favourite Things Big Sentiments, also in Memories Artprint Brown Ink.
Hope you have a BIG day today too :)
