Watch this FREE video tutorial for using simple masking techniques to create gorgeous layered scenes on your handmade cards!
Did we mention that our Design Team LOVES our new Butterfly Flowers set? We’ve seen some stunning cards using that set and today’s is right up there! Preeti has used the set in her fabulous video tutorial for us showing the first of several simple masking techniques.
Masking is a very easy way to add your images in stamped “layers”. Basically you stamp your image on a repositionable material. Preeti used masking paper – Post-It Notes make a great substitution. Then you cut out that image to use as your mask. PRO TIP: Save the masks in the container you use for your stamp set to have handy.
When you are building your stamped layers, you simply mask off the FOREGROUND images, stamp over them with whatever you want to have in the BACKGROUND. When you remove the mask, the foreground images will be clear and clean and the background images will appear to be tucked behind.
Let’s watch it happen in real time in this video. Be sure to watch the whole thing – Preeti is very generous with her tips and we always learn SO much when we watch her perform her magic!
See how easy that is? Imagine the possibilities! You can build entire little scenes with flowers, friendly pets, wildlife, trees…. the only limit is your imagination.
The masking technique is a super easy way to create scenes of images in front of and behind each other with no overlapping or gaps. Try this first of a series of simple masking techniques out using your favorite images and see just how easy it is!
