New Mask technique...
The feedback from the launch of my John Next Door brand has been so positive I would like to thank my Blog family for the support and (vital) feedback! I am sharing a card today made with a combination of the Autumn flowers stamps and the Argyle stencil / mask. I will be demonstrating this technique on Hochanda tomorrow at either 10am or 2pm but there is also a You tube video awaiting upload for this one as well.
This is a simple technique however it does relay on having a stamp press to make it work as the stamp and paper both need to stay in the same place for a few different layers of the stamping!
I stared by using my Duo mask Argyle on a piece of white card and shaded through this using a warm red and a honey die based Izink ink pad and blaending tool. Next add the stamps one the top with the mask still in place, ink up the stamp with black ink and stamp.
Finally I ink the stamp, after removing the spare piece, in red and stamp this onto the main piece. This gives the shaded look to the stamped image above with different areas being in either black or the red.
I made this up into the card as shown adding a layer of brown and a matching ribbon.
All the products used for this card and technique will be available on the Brand launch tomorrow at 10am on Hochanda ( freeview 85, sky 663 and online)
