Masking Images to Stamp a Sentiment Background

Today's cards are all about creating a background as your sentiment and masking up your focal image to do this.  There are a few different layouts and I've filmed a video to show you exactly how to make up this cute children's card.

This is a super easy technique to try and you can definitely make lots up in one go if you're wanting to create a stack of cards.  For this card that I've made you'll need to grab cardstock in Calypso Coral and Balmy Blue for your layers, and Whisper White THICK (because I've colour in using Blends).

You'll also want Memento Black and Soft Sea Foam ink pads.  Using a softer ink colour in the background allows the image to stand out - otherwise it'll be completely drowned by all the writing around it.

You could make a whole set of children's cards up using the Fable Friends stamps - they are so super cute!!  Take a look at the video at the end of this post for step by step instructions on how to make this card up.

I also played around with different design layouts using the same technique.  Below you see some Christmas cards where I've only used one sentiment and just stamped around the image itself.

And for a more uniform look, I took out the Stamparatus and created the card below where the same sentiment goes down the length of the image, and then one of the lines is in black.  

For both this card and the Christmas card I colour the image in with Wink of Stella after the colour went down just to make it pop on the page a bit more.

And here's the video tutorial for you to make them up yourself!  

Happy crafting,
