BeWitched by Masking

Hello Stampers!

It is my honor to be a guest designer for for October.  Each week I will feature a different technique with a Magnolia stamp.  

Week 1: Masking
Week 2: Dry Embossing
Week 3: Sepia Tones or E-card or only using E copics to color image
Week 4: Flower Soft

Week One is all about Masking!  This technique perfect for Tilda cards.  It gives the stamper the ability to position Tilda on furniture or in front of scenery.   

Witch Tilda
I will do my best to explain how I used this technique to create this card.   I'm only human, so if you have a question. PLEASE ask!!

Step 1:  Stamp Tilda in Memento Ink on white Card stock

Step 2: Stamp Tilda in Memento ink on top of post it note or scrap piece of card stock.   This will become your mask.

Step 3:  Cut the Tilda you stamped on the post it note or scrap paper out.  Do your best to get as close to the lines as possible.

Step 4:  Place your mask on top of the Tilda you stamped on your original piece of card stock. 

Step 5: Stamp the African Sunset on top of your masked image.

Step 6: Remove mask.   The mask should have protected Tilda from getting any ink on her.  The Sunset image should be in the background. 

Step 7: Color and finish your card as desired.

Additional Note:  I cut a mask for the "moon".  Then put the mask for the moon and Tilda back on my original card stock.  Then I sponged purple ink create the sky.    The masked protected my colored images from the sponge. 

I can't wait to see you create!  See you next week with an embossed creation.
