Love the Masking Technique

Hello Everyone,

I have fallen in love with the “masking technique” and I can’t seem to get away from this fun way of stamping. Last night I was on a roll and completed three cards. I had so much fun masking my images that I got carried away and before I knew it, I had three cards finished. I sure surprised myself; it usually takes me one evening or longer to complete one card. I am entering these cards in the Hero Arts Flickr group challenge (january2011B).

For the butterfly card, I used the technique that Shari Carroll did a few weeks ago in one of the hero arts video. The stamps used for this card are: Artists Butterfly H5426, Classic Design CG245, and Essential Messages CL371.

For the Earth Flower card, I embossed the flower with white embossing powder and then stamped over the image with Dots and Flowers S5213. The flower image comes from the Earth Flower stamp set CL428.

For the Flower Petals card, I stamped the main image in clear versa mark ink with white embossing powder and then stamped the other images and wiped the extra ink off of the flower. The stamps that were used are: Old letter Writing S4878, Music Background CG222, Water Color Petals CL431, and Large Plaid Pattern S5447.
Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Take care and have a great day.

Wow! Your cards are wonderful - three in one evening, too! Great job. Love the first one the best, but all three are outstanding.
