Merry Christmas Masking

IMG_9915
I have created my own mask by die cutting using the Fancy Labels Dies #2 with copy paper. I have used copy paper as this makes a thin layer so when stamping it stamps close to the edge of the mask straight onto the cardstock.
I have used an array of blue inks and silver pigment ink for stamping the images from Build a stocking stampset.

To make the die cut edge a little more defined I have used the lightest blue ink with a blending tool and blended the blue with a very light tough only.

I lifted the mask off to reveal the stamped image.  You will find this method can also be easily used as a 1 layer card option as well.

I have used a step up version by layering the stamped card stock on another white layer with foam mount tape which is then matted onto a black cardstock base.

I have stamped the image from Festive Greetings with Onyx Black Versafine Ink.

To finish embellishing the card I have added some silver star sequins and glossy accents to the stampset silver stars.
