CCM 131 Combine Two or More Stamps by Masking

Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers today and for the next two weeks is one of masking. We want you to combine two or more images/stamps, either digitally or the old traditional way with a separately stamped mask.

131 Combine Two Stamps

I have combined four stamps to make my card. I started with Riley (the prima doll stamp) and then masked her off and stamped first one wing and then the other. I then masked the wings off as well, whilst keeping the doll mask in place and stamped the background with a Justrite background stamp. I obviously could just have stamped the doll and cut her out, but I wanted to give the impression of dimension without it being too thick to go through the post at the lower postage rate!

I coloured the doll stamp in with copics.

I matted the stamped image onto some gorgeous self adhesive glitter vinyl, and that in turn onto some embossed brown cardstock. I glittered her wings, and added some shading around her to lift her off the background. A small metal corner and birthday sentiment finished it off.

I am entering this into:-
