As promised, I'm going to do posts to show different ways of using the stamps and stencils, and to give you an idea of the concept.
So, here's where we start:
I spray the mask with low tack adhesive - this is from crafters companion. This is then stuck to the card, I'm using Sheena's stamping card.
Next, ink over the top of the mask. Use any ink. It doesn't matter if you haven't mastered blending - this technique is really forgiving.
Start to build your pattern. I love this. I think about where I want my images. So, above, I have clustered my flowers together, with a couple of random ones. Israel over the masks - this will emphasis the white space when we remove the mask.
I've added the second stamp. I love this as even though it's just a swirl pattern, it still looks quite organic used with the flower. I've angled it so it's shooting out from the mask, and I've used the mask so I do not see the end of the stamp.
Next I've added just a crew hearts. This stamp is a droplet design, which I've stamped so they are coming from the mask or one of the tendrils
Next, quite a geometric design. This stamp sits inside itself really well - just change the angle to create different patterns. Bear in mind the mask will be removed, so you will not see the whole stamped image
Swirls. This is a good fill in stamp, and everyone needs a swirl in their life!
Next I've stamped just one heart, and a couple of leaves. These are now filling in spaces and extending the image - and are great finishing touches
The best bit - remove the mask. See how the white space now pops and the word is accented with your wonderful pattern! And everytime it can be different!
