The masking technique is when you cover a stamped image using a mask (post it note) so that other images can be stamped over the top.

– Base 21cm x 14.8cm (scored in half at 10.5cm)
– Card front 13.8cm x 9.5cm
Quick tips on how to do the masking technique.
1. I started by stamping and cutting the flower out on the sticky end of a post it note.  I then stamped the center flower on the card front (as below).  As you can see this set is one of my favourites, it is pretty stained and has been very well loved lol.

2.  I then placed the post it note flower on top of the stamped image (as a mask) and stamped a couple more flower images, one on each side (as above).
3.  One of the things I love about this stamp set is it has a solid flower image which allows you to add colour, make sure you stamp this before taking the mask off (as below).

4.  I finished by removing the mask from the center flower and stamped the solid flower image in a different colour (as above).

    Love this piece! Just wondering, what did you use to get the striations around the jar and flowers and how did you get the curling effect on the edge of the paper?

      Hi Becky
      I used Gorgeous Grunge to create the striations around the jar and flowers. The curling effect on the edge of the paper is done by rolling the edge using my finger, hopefully that makes sense and is of help.
