Just Add Ink #311 Masking

This week the challenge is “MASKING”

The word “Masking ” means to cover with a mask or to conceal.

On my card I have stamped an image on the card and then covered it and stamped again so that I have an overlapping image.

Let me explain this in steps.

Step !. Stamp image onto card stock


Step 2. Stamp same image on a piece of paper…I like to use a  “Post-it Notes” as this has some sticky on the back to hold it down


Step 3. Cut out the image on the post-it note staying close to the edge of the image or just on the inside of image.

Step 4. Layer your Post-It Note™ image over the image on your cardstock.


Step 5.Stamp your second image over your mask.


This image will appear to be in the background or as I have done here at the

side but coming from behind the first image


This allows you get two images overlapping without all the added lines you would get if

you just stamped two images on top of each other.

Here is my completed card..


I love the colours in Hydrangeas, its one of my favorite flowers…

also because they are easy to grow and I usually manage to kill most plants.

I have stamped on to Stampin’ Up! Shimmer paper using Stazon Black and

then water coloured the image with 8 different colours.

Trying to achieve a simlar colours to the ones I used to grown at my back door.
