Masking technique

This month at Stamp Club we re-visited Masking. This is a useful technique for layering stamped images without them overlapping.  

Choose a stamp which is fairly easy to cut out as you will need to do this to make the “mask”. I chose a fairly bold flower stamp. Ink and stamp it once onto card. Remember that the first image will always appear at the front of your card. Then cover this with the mask and stamp over the first image, just off to the side.

Continue to mask and stamp until you have the effect you want.

First image always appears at the front.

Then colour and mount onto your card. Add a sentiment and you’re done. A quick and easy way to make an impressive card.
