Essentially masking is a way to stamp only a portion of an image by covering all or part of a stamped image so that other images may be placed partly over it without the overlapping area being visible
If you are coming from Michelle's Blog, you are on the right track!
This is the card we will be making using a Circle
for the "mask".
Cut a 2-1/2 circle from a piece of cardstock
This will be your masking template
Use the cardstock piece with the circle cut out as your
stencil and begin sponging Sunflower Ink (Z2150)
and shading the inside edge with Sunset (Z2191)
Remove the template and just lookie! Isn't that cool?
Now take that 2-1/2" circle you cut out in the beginning, and
place it over the inked circle image, and begin making your
spooky,smokey background. I used Hydrangea(Z2129)
and Pacifica(Z2192) and Black
Then lift off the circle mask, and wha-la!
You are now ready to stamp the little witch flying across the moon
I used My Acrylix Fright Night (B1359) from page 68 in the Autumn Winter Idea Book
Then you can cut out a design for your sentiment
I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut a cute little
label. If you would like to know more about the Cricut cartridge,
Attach to the front of your card, then layer with another accent piece of cardstock, and a little bling for the stars.
