Masking with Loads of Love

'Loads of Love' was one of the stamp sets I received in my Demonstrator Starter Kit three years ago and has always been my go to set for demonstrating Masking at workshops.  Seeing it available at 20% off this month gave me the idea of preparing a masking tutorial for you all.

So here goes: -

Masking is the perfect technique to use with Two Step Stamping to give perspective by making images seem to be in front of others.

First stamp the image you wish to be in front.

Stamp that image again on a post it note, making sure part of the image is over the sticky piece. Trim around the image making sure the area where the background image will show is completely clear. It is important is cut the image on the post it note slightly smaller than the image on your project. Place the post it note image over the one stamped on your project.

Stamp your background image. Then remove the post it note.

Colour your image and add to a card blank.
