Masking - 2 ways

Hi friends, I have some crafty experiments to share with you today. I am playing with ways to mask images. Masking is used when we want to show one object being in front of the other. To get this effect we,

  1. Stamp the front image

  2. Use a mask to cover it

  3. Stamp the image behind

The mask prevents the part of the behind image from showing up on the final project in areas covered by the mask (which is the area of the object in the front). That's how it creates the impression that the objects are placed one in front of the other.

For today's projects, I used

  1. Masking paper - I used Gina K Designs' masking paper on solid stamped vase image

  2. Masking fluid / liquid mask - I used the one from Daniel Smith. I am not sure I used it as intended because my experience was less than great. I have used another liquid in the past and I will link to that one also for your convenience. I have had better luck with that one, however, this time I wanted to try a different product.

So, here are the cards:
