A masculine card using the Masking Technique to create a little scene with the
Enjoy Life and Winter Woods stamp sets
I first stamped the cyclist with black ink, masked that image and then stamped the trees with Basic Gray ink.  Having removed the mask, I stamped the grass - also with Basic Gray ink.

The mask I created for this masculine card using the Enjoy Life stamp set
I used a piece of Braided Linen Trim behind the label having first dragged my black ink pad over it.

TIPS:
  • To get the intensity of black that I wanted, I stamped several times using my Stamparatus to ensure precision.
  • I stamped two rows of trees, the second slightly above and to one side of the first.
  • I darkened the foreground a little by gently sponging black ink along the bottom of the stamped card.
Thank you so much for joining us today and we hope you'll join us again next month when we'll be providing sneak peeks from the new Holiday Catalogue!
