AEI♥U Challenge #21–Masking!
Happy Super Bowl Sunday! GO HAWKS!! ‘Nuff said. LOL Moving on . . . . I’m back today to share the next AEI♥U Challenge which is:
Masking!! This is such a FUN technique that is super easy and packs a whole lotta “Wow” every single time!! I had a ton of fun with it.
Can you see where I did the masking? I tried to keep it as simple as possible, in an effort to demonstrate the masking technique. So basically I stamped the water onto my card base, stamped the same image a second time onto some masking paper and trimmed it out with my scissors, covered the previously stamped water with the mask, and then stamped the mountains. So it looks like the mountains are behind the water. Right?! I did the same thing with the cloud and the sun. I stamped the cloud first, then stamped it again on some masking paper and trimmed it out with my scissors, covered the previously stamped cloud with the mask, and then stamped the sun. Easy peasy!! I used Happy Camper stamps to create this sweet little scene, including the sentiment on the banner. The banner was created using Build-A-Banner Stamps and Elle-Ments. The front frame was created using Finished Frames Elle-Ments, and the opening was die cut using the Circle Tag Elle-Ment.
