Masking Technique and Scene Building + Pretty Pink Posh Product Release Blog Hop

07:00


Hi Crafters,
today I decided to use the masking technique - one of my favourite, and lately neglected, techniques that I use often when building a scene. I used the Pumpkin Patch Critters stamp by Pretty Pink Posh to build up this scene. I began by stamping two of the larger stamps - the squirrel and the cat, masked them using masking paper and then continued building layer upon layer after than. In total, I believe I used five layers and about 8 masks. 

I had fun colouring the cat, it was the first time I've ever coloured details, like the stripes, on a cat. I also used two different shades of grey in order to give some variation to the animals. I don't have a video for today's card, but I do have a video where I apply the same techniques that you can watch here if you have any questions about masking.
