Archive for the ‘Masking-Reverse Masking’ Category



Such a fabulous site Brenda chose for the Inspiration Challenge! I loved THIS w/ the sweet little birdhouse so it was my inspiration. 
For my card, I used the new Bird Feeder image (I love the little nuthatch!) &  wonderful greeting. Since it mentions stormy weather, I wanted the background to reflect that so after stamping & coloring the bird feeder, I masked it then sponged in the bg. I stamped the greeting then added a few raindrops I drew & cut out. I used a birds on a wire punch across a piece of black c/s then added strips of gray & red for contrast to the black layer. A little red bird was added just because…
Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

A big congrats to Lisa, the newest Featured Stamper (FS571) on Splitcoaststampers! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the circle for the central image, but turned mine vertical, left off the divided panel & made mine a sympathy card.

To make my sympathy card, I used a large circle as a reverse mask, a smaller circle as a mask for the moon/sun, and a straight edge piece of paper for a horizon mask then sponged the blues below & red/oranges above. I went back in w/ a white pencil & added some reflection lines then stamped the Silhouette Branch in black & highlighted them w/ a white gel pen. After adding the stitched circle frame, I stamped the greeting & one of the little corner flourishes in 3 corners. After I die cut the whole panel, I sponged on color on the little narrow layer & put it back around the white panel. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Since most of the country has been locked in the deep freeze, I thought this pair of Cardinals sitting on a snow covered branch would be the perfect image to use. I put them into my Misti, stamped, colored then overstamped them. They were stamped off to the left side a bit because I wanted room to add some snowflakes & I had already planned to draw a box frame around them. The cardinals were masked & the snowflakes stamped w/ the Distress ink then a layer of designer paper was added behind. 

Here’s a look at the inside…haven’t decided on a greeting yet. And below it are the Copics I used.
