Masked Magic - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

A hot off the press creation to share today.  I'd done the stamping on Wednesday but smudged the ink as I couldn't wait and as I was at work yesterday I had to start all over again this morning!

Natty has set the challenge over on the Daring Cardmakers today and she's asked for masking of some sort.

I quite like the use of a stamp and die set to mask an image.  You basically use the die cut as a mask and then lift it off and stamp the image in it's place after you've created your background.  In my case I stamped lots of 'Bams' then added some distress ink to make the superhero pop a little.

I very rarely do one layer stamping but I think with the masking of the image it doesn't look so flat.  I may do more of these as my youngest has many birthday party invites..........

Right, I had better get on as I have a number of projects to complete along with a backlog of washing.  Oh and the dishwasher is being fixed today - Hooray!!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

It worked out really well Shabneez - despite the smudgy mishap. Personally, I've have just stuck something else on to cover the smudge, but I'm lazier than you, obviously! hahaha

Fabulous card Shabneez, I know lots of little boys who'd love this (I may have to borrow the design if you don't mind). I am always smudging my stamping, one reason I hardly ever do any. Cathy x

Wow, I never would have guessed your hero was stamped directly on the card, the way you've inked around him makes it look like he is on dimensional foam or something. A really good way to make "flat" cards for posting that still have that extra pop! :D

Great card and fun design

Karen Taylor said...

Cards for boys can be so difficult, but you've really nailed it with this one! Great fun card.
