Masking is a great way to create the illusion of depth and is a fun technique to try out.
You start out with the image you want at the front & cover it with a post it or scrap paper, then stamp the next image so it appears behind the first.
I did this using the cute Koala Adventures Stamp & Aloha Spirit. In fact I had to do some extra masking for the small hibiscus flower which is part of the Aloha word.
I masked off the text that I did not want to ink before stamping the image, so I only got the flower. I covered the flower to stamp the Koala & shade/colouring – I did get a bit of shadow around the flower but filled it in with a Shin Han marker that closely matched the colour.
I finished off adding the surf board so that it sat behind the Koala – know the Koala kinda of looks like doing the hula. I thought the image was perfect to fussy cut around the whole image & add it to the cut apart picture my life Fun in the Sun Card from the Central Park Theme.
This is a perfect card to give to someone escaping from our winter to find some sun or for someone who just loves the sun & surf.
I’d love for you to leave a comment before you head on over to Melissa Robinson to get more wonderful masking ideas.
I hope you enjoyed what I created, as much as I enjoyed creating it and thanks so much for taking the time to check it out.
See you soon
