It's time to get your stamps inked up and
join us for another challenge at Roses on Paper.
Monday the 2nd of February sees the start of a new week,
and my turn to host challenge number 5.
I hope you like what I have in store for you.
For this challenge you will be creating a card using
the 'Masking' technique.
For those of you who have never done masking,
don't panic, it's not scarey, it's actually quite fun
and the results are great.
I have created a tutorial here on my blog
(look at right hand side under stamps & tools used - masking)
and if that's confusing here's a link to another tutorial http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/masking_basic/
Just remember, the image you want to appear in front
needs to be stamped first, the image that is way in the
back is the last image.
To clarify - on my card I've stamped Tilda first,
then the bunch of roses, then the individual roses
and finally the french script.
Now for the challenge - create a
Valentines Day Card using the Masking Technique.
Your card should include one of the following stamps:
Magnolia, Alota, Whiff of Joy, Sarah Kay,
Rachelle Anne Miller or The Greeting Farm!
All of these stamps are available
from Summer at www.rosesonpaper.com.
In honour of Summers' love of roses your card must
include at least one ROSE
(think outside the square - doesn't have to be a stamp)
I've stamped and coloured my images with
Tim Holtz Distress Inks,
but you can use any colouring medium.
Layout is your choice.
