Masking Technique Tutorial !!


Good morning my dears,  I hope you are all well and happy.  I'm here to
share my card and some tutorial tips on how to achieve
a different look from just one or two stamps for


I've put the tutorial into sections but will explain them with text underneath
the pictures.

I Chose a Crafters Companion stamp called Floral Symphony which gave me 
a great choice of stamps to use. 







I used Momento black ink to stamp my 1st image onto 
Sheen Douglass white stamping card 

I then stamped the same stamp onto a post it note and cut it out
ready to place over the 1st stamped image 



Place your post it note over the 1st image, re ink your stamp
and stamp where required. 




This is the result you are looking for, remove the post it note
or keep repeating the process until you are happy with the floral
arrangement. 


Next I chose to use the music notes as a background to my flowers.
At this stage I would stamp on a couple of post it notes to cover the flowers
completely.  I did it slightly different in order to show you the method.


If you only wanted one line of musical notes then this is the method.


I wanted 3 lines of music as my background so covered the
complete stamp with post it notes that had been stamped with the
flower image and cute out. 



I added the sentiment and then started to colour



Here is the finished card


 Thank you so much for coming in to visit, I hope you enjoyed my pictorial
instructions and please do come back and see me soon.
