Technique Tuesday – More Masking


Here are two more ways to mask:


On the left is the finished card on Whisper White cardstock.  On the right is the mask.  I used the piece of Whisper White cardstock that was ruined by the blue painters tape and punched a scalloped circle at the top center.  Then I placed this mask over the Whisper White cardstock on the left and using a sponge and Pacific Point ink, I stenciled inside the circle.  I used the flowers, stem, and sentiment from the Field Flowers stamp set (# 122762).

As you can see from the above card, the three flowers are distinctly separated from each other.  Below is a similar card but using another form of masking to add the Pumpkin Pie flowers.

?????????? Masking Technique 008

The flower above was stamped on a piece of copier paper, cut out and then placed over the Melon Mambo flower images on the card.  Then the Pumpkin Pie images were stamped to overlap the other flowers.  This gives the impression of dimension.  This card was stamped on Glossy White cardstock (#102599).  I should caution you at this point…when stamping on Glossy White be careful to let each image dry before stamping the next one.  Since the paper has a glossy finish, the ink takes longer to dry.

Happy stampin’ !    -Sandra-

  1. Sandra: What lovely cards! I love the color combo of the bold pink and pumpkin together. Your masking is fabulous, and I loved the tip about saving the piece of card stock that was ruined for this. I have been known to ruin some and just toss it. I will think about using them for masks next time.
