Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I am delighted to share a one layer card with 5-step masking.
It is so satisfying to see scene cards coming to life. 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!
I hope these 5 simple steps are helpful and perhaps inspire you to try masking! I appreciate that you stop by today!
