Masking Tutorial

Chris has a great masking tutorial up today on the Tuesday Tools, Tips and Techniques thread over at our Creative Inspiration website. She made a beautiful fall card with this technique.

Hi today I would like to share this card I made using 1 stamp and one of my favorite techniques- masking!

 To create this card I started with kraft cardstock, Dare 2B Artzy Texture A stamp set, Tim Holtz Distress Cardstock and Tim Holtz Distress Inks ( Forrest Moss, Rusty Hinge, Fossilized Amber & Fired Brick).

I started by stamping my image onto kraft cardstock. 


 I then stamped my image onto a piece of leftover cardstock and fussy cut out the image to use as a mask. I placed the "mask" over the stamped image and stamped the leave in another color.


  You can see below how this creates a layered image.  


I continued stamping until my entire card was filled up.


 I then matted the card and added my greeting with Stamps. I hope you enjoyed this technique!
