Shaded Summer Masking Technique

Today I’m participating in a Blog Hop with my Stamping with Friends group and our challenge was to use the masking technique. Take a look and then please click through my fellow demonstrators to see their lovely creations! Roll Call is at the bottom of this post. My project uses the Shaded Summer stamp set and Summer Shadows Dies, and of course, the new Masking Paper!

The background is made using the new Artistic Mix Decorative Masks. To achieve the “white” sections so I could stamp the floral image in black, I cut 3 of the dis that cuts out that floral image out of masking paper, placed those “shadows” on my white cardstock. Then, I stenciled using two stencils, and then removed the masking paper and voila! Three white spaces for me to stamp.

Here’s a look at the supplies used:

(note: I decided to use black ink for the flower instead of color it with markers, so markers were not used).

Here’s a photo of me prepping my white cardstock:

Not sure if you can see, but my shadow masks are underneath the Decorative Mask stencil:

Then I added the color using Blending Brushes:

Then I removed the masking paper. Check out the video:

From there, I stamped the flowal image in black ink, added “Hello There” also in black. Layered on Soft Succulent Cardstock and then added little leaves cut from Soft Succulent designer series paper. I trimmed off any leaves that were hanging over the edge, and then added my soft succeulent open weave ribbon and tag. Adhere that to Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

That layer is popped up onto my soft sea form card front (that I had layered with black and white plaid from the Rustic Harvest DSP and Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

Thanks for looking! Be sure to hop along using the Roll Call below.

Happy Stamping! Kelly
