Sketches!{by tamara} - Masking Technique

Good Morning,

Weekly challenge today from Sketches!{by tamara}.

Todays was a Recipe Challenge. Must use at least these three items on your card or scrapbook page.

  1. Masking
  2. Yellow
  3. Alphabet

I choose to do a card. Those are yummy little M & M's inside the plastic holder. Just so you know the little cups are from Stampin' Up. Do you see that tag on the left hand side. When you pull it the candies fall out the opening on the inside of the card. The masking part of the card are the little candies under the candy machine.

                                                      How to do Masking?

  1. Masking creates the illusion of depth. First decide what you want to be in front or foremost on your card and stamp that image.
  2. On scrap paper stamp and cut around the image closely. Depending on what you are masking you may need to cut more than one image. For the candies above I have 4 or more masks going. I use post it notes so the back of the cutout image is slightly sticky.
  3. Place your cut out image overtop of the image you have already stamped. Now stamp partly overtop of the mask (post it note image) and partly on the cardstock. When you lift off the masked image you will see the newly stamped image looks like it is behind the first image that you stamped.
That's all there is to it. You can do masking as well with a stencil on your card or scrapbook page. Distress Inks would work great with stencils.

Well pop on over and see what the other gals from Sketches!{by tamara} have created.

Off to enjoy my day....hope you do too!
