I'm so excited that I'm the Studio Star of the Week. One of my favorite techniques is masking because it’s one of those relatively simple techniques that gets a big wow. You can add depth to your stamping, frame an image, fill in images, and even selectively use parts of your stamps to get more mileage out of them. My challenge to you is to create a card using the masking technique and then share it at the Studio Stampers blog-it can be basic masking, reverse masking, or even masking a part of your stamp. The only thing you need to do is use some type of masking on your card.
Here's my sample. All supplies are from a muse|studio and can be purchased from my web store. I stamped the Marigolds from Marvelous Marigolds on a kraft cardbase in Cherry and also stamped them on some eclipse masking tape that I've had forever in Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut out the Marigolds from the masking tape and used them to cover up the Marigolds on my cardfront. I then stamped the Woodgrain background stamp over the card front in French Roast and some leaves from Marvelous Marigolds in Grass. I removed my masks and added a label that I had die cut from Cherry cardstock and stamped with the matching outline from Vintage Labels on the cardfront with 3d foam adhesive. The sentiment from Contemporary Greetings is stamped on a piece of Sugar cardstock with French Roast ink and mounted onto the label. Finally, I lightly sponged the center of the Marigolds with Sugar ink and added a couple Vanilla Pearl stickers to the centers of the flowers. There is about as close to a one layer card as you'll get from me!
I love how all the masking and layering on of stamps and images adds so much depth to this card.
Thanks for visiting and be sure to come back soon to let me know you played in the challenge. I can't wait to see what you create.
