Using Masking with Tim Holtz’s Bird Crazy Clear stamps

Posted by on September 1, 2015 at 9:24 am.

Last evening, I pulled out my cards and worked on them a tiny bit. Mainly I was just looking at them and talking to my daughter. This is her first day back at school.

The card you see at the top (white background) was started about a week ago. They are four separate stamps. I used the masking technique. The one on the lower left hand side was started this past Friday and the stamp to the right was started yesterday. I have not even placed that on a card yet. I colored most of the couple with my Copics markers; however, I’ve decided to color the bouquet of flowers with my Faber Castell sketch colored pencils.

As I already mentioned, with the card with the white border, I used a technique called “Masking.”

I first learned about it watching one of Sandy Allnock’s informative videos. The video I’ve shown above is my first introduction to masking. I was fascinated with it; however, I did not have any use for it at the time.

It was set aside when I took a break to start knitting a fall hat for my lovely twelve year old daughter. I used Malabrigo wool yarn. It’s super soft and squishy. I’m thrilled to say that the hat is almost finished. Oh… and I’ve gotten back into sewing again too! Whee, I believe towards the end of September (or early October) I’ll add weaving back to the mix. I am having so much fun with my hand crafts!
