Hello Friends, How are you? Feeling itchy for spring? Hopefully my flower card will take you back to the warm days of summer. Today I want to share an easy way to avoid masking and I think it’s faster too…a bonus!
If you use second generation stamping (stamping off to the side first then stamping in the desired area so the stamping is lighter) in a light color you can avoid using a mask (I used distress ink) . Don’t worry about stamping on top of each other. Once you are finished stamping outline the flowers and leaves with a fine tip sharpie. You can decide if you want the leaves in front of the flower or behind depending on the lines you trace. After the image is outlined… color with markers. I used Copics. The flower stamp is called, “Whimsical Flowers”
Lots of texture!! Once your paper is dry add some painters tape to secure your stencil. Love this “Doily” stencil from Tim Holtz.
The sentiment is from Power Poppy in case you were wondering. That’s it for today. I hope you find my masking technique helpful. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Kathy
