The Virtue of Masking

Hello friends!
I don't know about you....
Masking an image is always so much fun ,especially when it works! 😉

Today's post is all about masking.

3 roses

 This is a stamp that you don't think about doing masking. I don't know what got to me...but I did.
 I admit that I don't even have any Masking Paper, so I just used a piece of scrap paper. Masking Paper is definitely on my wish list now.

I started stamping the pink/red rose and then stamped the yellow and lastly, the orange rose.

The shades of colors really show the depth of images. Even though it is one layer, the illusion of  dimensions really comes through. Of course, with the help of MISTI, this can be easily achieved. 
All you need is a little patience and practice. Anyone can do it.

I have just ordered  MISTI Accessories (just revealed at CHA 2017)on my must-have order list. I think those corner and triangle pieces really come in handy!

Your masking is just perfect, Virginia. Mine never turn out this well. I wanted to tell you that I just pre-ordered the Creative Corners from MISTI. I clicked on the site from your blog - I hope you get credit. Please show us how you use the Creative Corners as soon as you get yours. I can hardly wait!

Gorgeous card, your colors are excellent. Masking--I use post it notes that are "full adhesive" and they work fine.
