Masking

http://www.onlinecardclasses.com/CS3/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/CS3_paticipant.pngAnother  homework piece. I am often all thumbs when it comes to stamping cute little images to make a patten or a pleasing arrangement...but this masking technique...it might solve my placement issues.

I created the mask using two spellbinder dies on masking paper.  I placed the outer portion and the inner portion of the mask down, and began adding my leaves, flowers, and finally filler dots. I stamped my sentiment last, with the help of a stamp positioner. I am enjoying this masked look.



All inks were Hero Arts - Bubblegum, Butterbar, Green Hills, Navy
Stamp Hero Arts  CG351 Just Because.
Edited to add...the flowers and bits and leaves are from the Mama Elephant set Waterblooms.
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oooh, this came out great! I lack the gene for fussy stamping. I might have to give it a go, though, if I can find a set to use.
