Lawn Fawn - Boo!

Hi Everyone! I swear this is my last Halloween card. I know I said that before, but this time I promise.....hmmm, well maybe not promise, ya never know. When an idea strikes, I just have to get it out of my head so maybe this is my last Halloween card, maybe not, no promises.

For this card, I decided to do some masking. I had this idea of creating a word with stamps and knew it would take many smaller type images but since my Lawn Fawn collection is HUGE, it was no problem.

Here's how I created this card:

I started by stamping all the images onto masking paper and cutting them out.

Next, I sketched the word "Boo" onto an A7 card mat very lightly in pencil so I could erase the pencil marks after I stamped all the images.

I began stamping images over the pencil sketch and decided which images would go on top and which would appear to be underneath.  I continued to stamp images that would be in the forefront of the design. When I was finished with those images, I placed a masked image over them and stamped the other images on top so they would appear to be behind the images I already stamped.

As you can see, there are images that are behind others and this is the effect that is achieved when using this masking technique.

Now that my stamping and masking is complete, it's time to start coloring.

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and try this masking technique. It's fun and addicting and there are more ideas in my head that will need to get out on paper. Next stop, Fall/Thanksgiving.....maybe. :)
