Easy Masking For Layering Stamps
I started to make this card for my daughter’s birthday…but, it’s her 21st birthday on Thursday so I thought it might be just a tad kiddish for this milestone event. I was inspired in my layout by the Fusion Card Challenge sketch.
I love the CAS feel to this card and think these animal stamps from Close To My Heart’s Some Kinda Wonderful are adorable. But, I masked my turtle too high behind the flower border (from CTMH’s Easter Bunny – last month’s Stamp of the Month). To “fix” it, I ended up just adding a thin strip of green DP from CTMH’s Some Kinda Wonderful paper pack. Luckily the fox was an easy mask. My favorite masking method is to stamp my image on a sticky note and cut it out. I do have a Masking Liquid but find I am impatient and so normally I end up smudging the ink before it’s dry. argh…
What rubber stamping supplies do I need to make this card?
CTMH has a great feature they offer. They have a paper pack, a stamp set and a scrapbooking add-on for their different “themes”. In this case, Some Kinda Wonderful, is really quite wonderful! I hand doodled (I’m sure you can tell! tee hee) the squiggles around the sentiment to make sure it complied with the sketch challenge. I used my CTMH watercolor paint set for these images – there are quite a few color families and these paints are easy to use.
