It's not often I create a one layer card (well, technically it's a one layer card front), but I wanted to show off the lovely Garden in Bloom two step stamp set, and the Masking technique was perfect for this card. So simple, but effective I think.
Stamping Tips for a great masked result:
One of the keys to a great masked card is having a well defined edge to the masked area. I find using paper (grid paper is perfect) to mask off the area works better than cardstock for that purpose.
Grid paper is also perfect for lining everything up straight when you have a straight masked area like I have used here. Here's a picture of my set up before stamping.
- I also find sponging a little over the masked edge gives great definition too.
Here's the colour combination I used on today's card:
The Garden in Bloom stamp set is a great set to add to your collection. It's Photopolymer, so really easy to line up. It's great for two step stamping, but you can also use the outline stamps just by themselves.
