Technique Thursday Masking with Rubber Stamps is a great way to add more depth to your cards by stamping one image, masking it using a post it note, then stamping the image again. Masking a stamp or portion of your card allows you to keep your stamped images clean from other inks. Let me show you what I mean!
First stamp your image in this case I stamped a flower from Birthday Blossoms stamp set with Melon Mambo Ink and used my Aquapainter to blend the inks and color the flower.
Next I stamped the same flower on a Post It Note towards the top where the sticky part is and then I cut it out with snips. The flower now becomes a Mask for you to use!
Then I placed the mask over my flower so that I could stamp another flower right underneath the first stamped flower.
I went ahead and cut out another Mask so that I could cover both flowers I stamped. Then I stamped the leaves with Old Olive Ink and smaller flowers around the masked flowers using Daffodil Delight Inks.
I decided I loved the smaller flowers so I stamped them all around and added the Have a Beautiful Birthday with Melon Mambo Ink. I used the Aquapainter to color the leaves and the smaller flowers.
I used the New Faceted Jewels for my flower centers that you can order starting June 1, 2017. I also decided to add a third flower and created a mask for my leaves. Creating as I went made this a great card, don’t you think?
Technique Thursday Masking with Rubber Stamps really is a fun way to create beautiful works of art to send to someone for their birthday!
