Wednesday Masking TechniquePosted by rostrus on Jan 16, 2013 in Pink by Design Stamps, Stamping, Techniques | 2 comments
This is Rebekah from Crafty Teacher Mom, and I am really excited to share with you a stamping technique that I just learned a few days ago! This technique is called Masking and it really adds a different element to the stamps you already have.
Here’s how it works!
You put a stamp onto your card or project that you want to be in the foreground. I used a sentiment from the PBD set called “Shoe Addict”.
Next, you stamp the same sentiment onto a scratch piece of paper and cut it out. Depending on how you want the finished product to look, you can cut a shape around it like I did or you can cut along the lines of the image exactly.
Now you are going to lay the scrap piece of paper over your originals stamped image. I used a little atg tape to hold it into place because it peels up easily.
You now take the stamp that you want in the background and stamp it directly over the first stamped image.
This is now what it looks like
Now, you just peel up the scrap piece of paper and you are left with this masked image
I then just colored in my image to give it a little more personality.
I did this on a white piece of paper so it would show up a little bit better for the tutorial. I ended up cutting out the entire image and using it on a different background.
This technique really adds a new dimension to cards.
She masked the “Complete” and changed it to a different color! Such a cute idea!
