Simple Masking Technique with the Springtime Joy stamp set

Hello Everyone,

Masking is a useful but simple technique to achieve a different look with yours stamps without adding additional layers.

The front most image is stamped first and then covered with a paper mask. Cutting the mask from sticky note paper means it stays in place while the other images are stamped over the top.

You can see how to do this in my video tutorial….

Of course I had to get my Stampin’ Blends out to colour these little guys!
