Drum Roll Please........

Alrighty then! The first technique for Technique Tuesday (even though it is Thursday) is masking. I thought I would start with the basics and work towards more difficult techniques. Masking is a fun way to add dimension to your stamped artwork.......YES ARTWORK......I don't want to hear any snickers and giggles out there and I don't want to hear.....well I'm not artistic! You can be!!! With a little rubber and ink....oh and paper!! I've also decided to keep my supply list pretty general, that way you can choose your own stamp sets and cardstock colors.

Cardstock, stamps, ink, post-it note, scissors

Step 1:
Stamp the image you want in the foreground onto the post-it note, making sure you get some of the image over the sticky so it will stay in place, then cut out as close to image as possible.

Step 2:
Stamp the image you want in the foreground onto your white cardstock. Then place your cut out image over it, making sure you line it up accurately.

Step 3:
Stamp the image you want in the background over the post it image.

Step 4:
Peel off post-it to reveal images. Color in images and finish card with your choice of embellishments.
