Our technique challenge at 52CCT is masking. There are many different masking techniques and I have created 2 different cards: one simple and one more complex.
Card 1 Simple Masking
For this card, I masked off a 2-inch strip of the card base, then sponged on 3 shades of Oxide Distress Inks on blue/green tones. I removed the masking tape, then stamped snowflakes (MFT-Snow Flurry stamp set) along the inked bar in various shades of Stampin Up inks and Versamark with Hero Arts gold embossing powder. The sentiment is also from MFT (Joyous Christmas) I added a few pearls to finish the card
Card 2 – Complex Masking
I stamped out a scene/sentiment using Papertry Ink. “Winter Hills Stamp Set.” I also stamped the house image on a thin sheet of masking paper. I coloured the house scene with Copic markers, cut out the house I stamped on the masking tape, removed the masking back, placed it over the original, used some hill shapes to mask off part of the image. I sponged on hill shapes. Once I had the image as wanted I set it aside, I die cut a snowflake unto the front of an A2 card, using dies from PI, and two separate smaller snowflakes from silver and blue papers. Assembled the card.
