Mask It

Hello Everyone...............a huge welcome to followers old and new x

Today I am sharing another 8 by 8 easel card using the masking technique.  I really enjoy this technique and I used  a combination of Tim Holtz Visual Artistry  Collection and  his Components Collection Stamps.

There are various ways of doing the masking technique........i.e you can restamp the image on paper, cut it out and place over the main stamped image.............there is also a masking fluid that you can apply over the stamped image and then remove, or as I have done on this one...cover the stamped images with torn paper. 



Once images were stamped  in Archival Ink ( Sepia) I inked them with various shades of Distress Inks......................my favourite Vintage Photo and Blue China.


I added a few embellishments  placing glossy accents inside the framed piece.



Thank You so much for taking the time to drop in and maybe even leave a comment.....it means so much as I know you are all very busy.

Take Care x

  5. Annie, this is wonderfully done! Your masking technique turned out terrific. I really love that sentiment. My son has an art assignment due that involves a shadow box creation and some of your ideas here I am going to share with him as I think he will really appreciate the visual and get the wheels turning. Love how your easel card turned out and I can't wait to see what else is cooking on your crafty table!!

  7. Hi Annie, Your card is gorgeous, so much to see and so many beautiful stamps. I also love the colours you used to distress it. It reminds me of a beautiful collage. I have tried that masking fluid but not had much success, your idea is much better. Hugs, Anne x
