Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters


Barbara Campbell here! I am so pleased to be your hostess for this weeks MIUM Challenge at STV.  With all of the beautiful images to choose from at Gina K Designs, I am sure that you will be able to join in the challenge this week. 

Are you crafters ready to put on your MASK?  Yes, It is not Halloween, but I am asking you to put a mask on your project this week.  Masking is a way of making your images look like they are behind or in front of other images.   In my example, I chose leaves, from Gina's, The Simple Things stamp set, but this technique adapts well with flowers and animals and lots of others things too.

                                       Here is the card that I did for this challenge. 

Card stock is Dusty Sage, Sandy Beach and Black Onyx with Fresh Asparagus ink, all Gina K.  I layered the leaves using a mask for several of them.  Using the mask below, and Distressed Ink called Frayed Burlap, I then sponged over the entire image.  Two ways to Mask!  The sentiment is my favorite from Gina's Birthday Greetings.  A strip of striped paper and some black stones from my stash.  I also used a spellbinder die on the edge called A2 Bracket Borders One.

I just tore a hole in a piece of typing paper where I wanted it to be and then used it to sponge the area over the leaves.

 I can't wait to see the sensational projects that you come up with.

Remember there are lots of ways that you can use a mask.
