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.
SPOTLIGHT ON MASKING-
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.
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.
