Skipping Stones Design Tips / Technique Blog Hop

Hello everyone,

I have a tip and technique for you today today.

My technique is masking.  You can use most anything as a mask and I normally use sticky notes or actually masking paper.  With masking you always want to start with the image you want to be up front and then mask as you work back.

My tip is where I store my masks.  I keep them on the back of the carrier sheets for the stamps.  That way they are always there if you need them.  

Here is the card I created using the tips and techniques above.

I used the birdie from the Hippo Birdie Two Ewe stamp set along with the french fry.  I stamped the bird on the front panel, masked it off and then stamped the fry.  I then coloured in the images with my copics and popped up that front panel on to my card base.

I added the sentiment from the same stamp set, which makes me giggle every time I read it and added some enamel dots and some Wink of Stella that you can't see very well.

Don't forget to hop along to the other DT members and see the tips and techniques they have to share.

  5. Sweet card thanks for the tips on masking.

  6. Masking gives such great results and is something I rarely do.....maybe because I am not crazy about fussy cutting. But masking lets you do so much with your stamps that I really need to get over myself and do it more often! lol...
    This is such an adorable card. Love your awesome coloring on that happy, happy birdie!!!
