It’s been so long since I’ve done this technique I thought I’d do a Tutorial on it. It’s called “Masking”. See Tutorial below…..
You will need a couple of line images, post it note, paper snips and ink.
Stamp the images on the post it note at the top so you keep some of the sticky part.
You may want to to a couple of images…..
Cut the images out just inside the black stamp line. You want it to be a smidgen smaller than the image itself so just inside the black line works really well.
For this card I used three masks….2 smaller ones and 1 larger one.
I stamped two flowers with Black Stazon onto White Card Stock. these images will be in the forefront of the bouquet. so select which image you want to be whole.
I then placed the two masks over the petals of the images to mask it.
I then took the larger image and stamped over the masks
I decided I wanted more flowers in my bouquet and added the third mask to stamp a few more images.
Because the smaller image had a stem on it I just tore a piece of post it note and placed it to protect the area I would be stamping.
I then stamped the smaller image three times each time moving the scrap piece of post it note to protect the area where the stem would have appeared.
Remove the masks and here you have the images in front and some of the flowers in back.
I drew in some stems and leaves with my black marker
I decided to make this a Bright and Spring like Bouquet. So I used the Watercolor Pencils and began outline the images. I find this works really well for me.
Use your Blended Pen to distribute the color. I work from the outer edge in, in a circular motion and leave a few areal lighter to add another color.
Here I’ve bended and added some yellow and orange to give the flowers a more natural look.
….and here we have it!!! My Spring Flower Bouquet!!! See where I added the green stems and leaves which I drew in? You can also see better the colors I mixed together.
