The Spotlight Challenge #49 Masking

This week over on The Spotlight Challenge we would like to see masking on your creations.

We have a fab prize on offer of this gorgeous Lemon Shortbread stamp courtesy of Crafts & Me.


This challenge is hosted by Jack and this is her description of what she would like to see.

Its my turn to set the challenge this fortnight and I'd like to see you using masking - This can be using a bought mask (or stencil), making your own, stamping your main image and masking over it before you do your background, using torn paper as a mask, but NOT a picture of a mask. I'd also like a short explanation of how you used your mask.

So onto my card.

CCM #49 Masking 1

Sorry about the poor quality of the pic!

I started with a blank piece of white card and stamp the LOTV couple onto it. Having made a mask of them I then covered them and stamped the Cuddly Buddly church. I also made a mask of that and then stamped the larger of the trees just behind the church.

I did a sort of reverse mask for the sun by punching out a circle and overlaying the paper with the hole and then pouncing through it.

The sky was done with Broken China DI and the other background with a couple of toning colours from the same Kaleidoscope ink pad which I used to stamp the trees. Finally I coloured in the couple and church with promarkers.
