Card Café - Week 10

Starting this month, Pink Paper Bakery will be having a monthly drawing for those who participate each week in the Card Café. For each entry (maximum of three entries per week), your name will be submitted into a raffle for a prize for that month. The winner will be announced the first Saturday of the following month. This month's prize is a 6" x 6" sampler of the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper, as well as matching card bases and buttons!

This week's Card Café challenge is a technique challenge, masking (or reverse masking). For those of you who aren't familiar with masking or reverse masking, check out these examples.

Masking gives you the effect of an object in front of another without an actual extra layer. In this sample, the flower on the left was masked while the 'background' leaves were stamped.

To mask, stamp your image on your card stock, then stamp again on a Post-it note. Cut the image out of the Post-it (cutting to the inside of the lines), lay it on top of your image on your card stock to act like a mask, then stamp your background image. When you remove the Post-it image, you will be left with a foreground and a background image, like the flower and leaves below.
Reverse masking is not actually masking the image itself, but masking an area that you want images, or ink to remain inside.
A mask was created from a sheet of vellum, to protect the white space beyond the rectangle. Ink was sponged inside the rectangle, and then the mask was removed before the stamping was done. You can keep all of your images inside, by removing the mask last.

Now it's your turn!
