Masking - Basic
by Beate Johns
Something as simple as a little Post-It® Note adds lots of depth to your stamping.
- Post-It Note™
Stamp the image you would like to have in the foreground (very front) of the scene on your cardstock.
Stamp the same image on a Post-It Note™, making sure that part of the image is on the sticky part of the paper.
I stamped two images, since I have several mushrooms on my cardstock.
Carefully cut the images on the Post-It Note™ out with your scissors.
Cut right on the line or even slightly inside of it.
Layer your Post-It Note™ images over those on your cardstock.
Stamp your second image over your mask. This image will appear to be in the background.
Step 6 (Optional)
Once you have finished stamping over one image, remove the mask, place it over the next foreground image and continue to stamp.
Color your image if necessary.
Finish your card.
