Hey Crafty Friends! Today I am over at the Craftin Desert Diva's Blog sharing a tip on how to mask. Masking an image is a way of bringing an image to the forefront of a scene or creating a background for an image. The mask protects the image while being stamped over. You will need a few basic supplies to mask with. There are masking paper you can buy specifically for this purpose or you can use Post-It notes or copy paper for masking. I used a Post-It note in this demonstration along with some Ad tech Removable Tape. Today I am featuring the newly release Fright Night stamp set.
Note: When using copy paper or the bottom part of a Pots-It note you must use a removable tape to hold the image down.
Now let's get started.
Step 1: Gather you supplies
Step 2: Layout out your scene to get an idea how you want your scene to look
Step 3: Stamp the first image that will be in the forefront (hat)
Step 4: Stamp images on masking paper (post-it note)
Step 5: Cut out masked images and an important note here-cut directly on the line of the image, you should be able to see the stamped line left on the discarded piece of paper - if you cut around the image it will leave a 'halo' effect when stamping the other image on top.
Step 6: Place mask on hat then stamp kitty.
Tada! The kitty is now wearing her witch hat!
Step 7: Mask kitty and stamp pumpkin. Now the kitty is 'sitting' on the pumpkin.
Step 8: I decided to add a few more pumpkins so I masked the pumpkin and stamped one on each side.
Now you can color your scene with your choice of medium.
Stay tuned to see my finished card!
