Default masking question

i have tried yesterday the first time masking. i used a "easy" image a flower out of bud basics.
and the overlapping was only on the left side of the flower and the right side.
my goal is to make a masking with several images
like this the grouping with the penguins

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=13366

my question is, after you take of the post-it note how do you place the stamp on the exact position? do you use a stamp a majig? i cant see how this would work eigher...

i just cant imagine how you can stamp on the exact place specially with so many penguins close together. if you look at the card.... how many post-it notes where used? one or two at one time?

thanks so much for any tips and advice

claudia

You would stamp your first flower on your card. Then lay the post-it mask over your stamped image. Stamp your flower again, so it's off to the side of it, however far you want, say 1/2 on the post-it, half off. Then you'd take off the post-it and you'll see your first image, then the second one looking like it's standing behind. If you want to stamp a 3rd flower, maybe centered behind the two you've got, then you would need to mask both flowers, so it would seem to be behind both of them.

I hope that makes sense!

Stamp the one you want in front first, then mask it and the next one looks like it's in back. You may need more than one mask. HTH

We have a masking tutorial in the resource section, Claudia.

We have a tutorial on reverse masking there as well.

Hugs and smiles
