Christmas Magic with Masking 101

Christmas Magic Snowman

I had some fun today stamping with the Christmas Magic stamp set. Now, I know that this stamp set just cries out to be watercolored and believe me, I will do that, but for now I just wanted to create a quick card.

The card was kept simple with the use of only two colours of ink – Marina Mist and Night of Navy. And only Night of Navy card stock in addition to Whisper White. 

I masked the snowman – keep reading for the step by step instructions – so it would appear grounded but over stamped the trees in both colours.

A couple of greetings and some Metallic Enamel Shapes finish the card.  

 

 Masking 101

 Masking 101: Stamp the image that will be in the foreground once on your card stock and a second time onto a post-it note or copy paper. Make sure if you are using a post-it that the stickiness is under the stamped image.

 Step 2: Place the post it note over the stamped image covering it completely.

 Step 3: Stamped the second image on top of the post-it.

 Step 4: Remove the post-it from the card stock. You can re-use the mask so stick it into the stamp case for storage.

 Masking brings the snowman to the front and keeps the image clean and sharp. It’s a great technique to use whenever you want to create depth on your cards and your focal image crisp.
