LAYERED MASK TECHNIQUE
I really enjoyed making these cards using ideas from Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013 August Layered Mask Technique
Check out Tim's Blog via the link above for step by step instructions.
Each card is perfectly flat even though they appear to have so much depth
(except for any added embellishments)
The base of all of the layers has been achieved with Pumice Stone Distress Stain.
Next the Focal Point Images were stamped in Black Archival Ink and masked off.
All other stamping layers were then applied by directly coloring on the stamps with distress markers.
You must HUFF! on the stamp before pressing to paper to moisten the Distress Ink.
A more feminine Style of Card using Worn Lipstick Distress Stain as a background.
Hope these cards inspire you to try this
