Today I wanted to share with you a couple of cards I made recently using the masking technique.
Here is a quick overview of how I used masking on these cards.
First of all I got a scrap piece of paper. Not a piece of card stock as that is too think, instead I used a scrap piece from old printed documents. I cut it to the same size as the front of the card. Then I cut a circle out of it. I made sure the circle was where I wanted my flowers to be on the first card. This piece of scrap with the hole in it is now my mask for the first card. I kept the cut out circle and used it as a mask for the second card.
I then used washi tape to hold my card front and the mask in place. I then stamped the flowers and leaves making sure that I got good coverage in the hole.
You truly don't get the whole effect until the mask is removed.
To complete the card, I just added a sentiment over the top and tied some ribbon around the card front, then mounted it onto a coordinating piece of coloured card stock.
I used the circle that I cut out from the scrap paper as a mask on the second card. The circle was held onto the card front using a loop of washi tape under the middle of the circle. Then I stamped all over the card front. I then removed the mask, added a sentiment and a few leaves in the blank space, then tied some ribbon before mounting onto coordinating card stock.
Masking is such a fun technique and gives you some amazing results. There are many ways to use a mask, and this is just one of them I have shown you today.
Why not try this technique soon.
Thanks for popping by.
Have a great day.
