Cave card with masking technique

Hi Everyone!!

It's Anushree here and today I'm sharing a card made using masking techniques. This technique is simple and so much fun.

I have used Cave Dwellings stamp set and Cave Kiddos stamp set with their coordinating dies for this card.

Here's the card


To make my card, I took 5*7" Kraft card base. Next I took a half inch smaller (from all sides proportionally) Neenah white cardstock.

First I stamped the cave house and path image from Cave Dwelling stamp set. Next I took the masking paper and stamped the same image, cut it using coordinating dies and pasted on top of my stamped image.

Same as like cave houses, I stamped the cave kiddos as seen and masked them using the masking paper.

Next I did some ink blending for the top half using a mix of blue and grey shades to create the night scene. For the bottom half, I used shades of yellow and browns for ink blending creating a scene around the bonfire.

Remember, all the images are still masked while I'm doing this ink blending.

Next I removed all masking paper from white cardstock, now I have all clean images without getting any colour from ink blending. Time to colour these now, I used alcohol markers to colour all.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment and two small kids images in Raven Hybrid ink .

To complete my card, I attached this ink blended white cardstock over the Kraft card base and adhered enamel dots.

Hope you enjoyed my card and inspired to try the technique with these cute stamp sets from the LDRS Creative Store .

Bye for now, See you soon with another inspiring post.

Thanks for stopping by.
