This week's challenge was masking and I went all out!!
I actually did a few different masking techniques. First, I masked parts of stamps before inking so that I could just stamp parts of the images. On the front of the card, I masked off Flopsey so I could stamp just the tree, and I also masked the kids twice so that I could stamp them 3 at a time. On the inside, I masked off the witches so that the outer line of the stamp wouldn't ink.
Second, I masked images so that I could stamp other images over them, and also to airbrush the backgrounds. I did this technique all over the outside and inside to get all the characters layered. And then every single image was masked to do the airbrushing!
Lastly I did reverse masking. On the outside, I reverse-masked the house to airbrush it with an even coat of purple. On the inside, I used the reverse mask to stamp the polka dots onto the first Hooga Booga girl, and then I airbrushed inside the mask to color her pink. I did a reverse mask on the bear suit to stamp Isabelle inside. I also used reverse masking to color the blue monster with his speckle texture, and to evenly color both witches. TFL!
