One Layer Card with 5 Easy Masking Tips

 Hello friends!

I have a project to share over Altenew Card Blog. Please stop by to check it out!

I am using the Victorian Green House Stamp Set as an example here. Let's get to it!

1. Stamping the Focal Point 

Start with stamping the Greenhouse with grey or beige. With the stamp positioner like MISTI, I stamped the greenhouse in Vanilla Cream Crisp Dye Ink. I left the stamp in position without removing it from MISTI. This step will allow you to re-stamp the image after stamping the small details like the plants.

2. Creating the Masks

I then created a mask with the Altenew Masking Paper. First, I stamped on the masking paper and die cut it. I also created a few additional masks with the plants. With the masks covering the greenhouse image, I was able to stamp the foreground and the background.

3. Add Theme and Interests to Your One Layer Card

Next, I stamped the trees behind the Greenhouse using the plants (part of the Victorian Greenhouse Stamp). Of course, the Greenhouse must have some wonderful indoor plants. Finally, I re-stamped the plants inside the Greenhouse in Obsidian Pigment Ink.

4. Background and Foreground

Once I finished stamping the images, I applied blue (Ocean Waves) lightly with Mini Blending Brush Set. For the ground, I chose Butternut Crisp Dye Ink. This completed the entire scene that I had envisioned.

5. Embellish Your One Layer Card!

The Golden Trim Washi Tape and Seashore Enamel Dots are just the perfect special touches for embellishing this card.
