I love the masking technique. You can punch, die cut or cut your own shape from a stamped image to create a positive or negative mask.
I use the amazing Woodware 'Mask-It' sheet to make my masks. It has a stampable surface and is easy to cut plus you can use the mask over and over again. The sticky or tacky surface is brilliant and never leaves a residue. The other good thing about Mask-It sheets is that your entire mask will have a tacky back making it easier to use.
Here I created a mask from my new stamp JGS363 Trinket Tree.
Stamp the image in black and emboss it with clear powder. Stick the mask over the image and run over the surface with a brayer inked with Kaleidacolor Caribbean Sea ink pad.
I then peeled away the mask to reveal a white tree. The image has been stamped again onto a second piece of card, coloured in the same way and the top layer cut
out to create a 3D area over the tree.
The background has been splattered with bleach.
