Last week, I bought some masking paper and decided to do some scene building. I’ll be using the London Mouse and Strike Up The Band stamp sets by MFT.
I stamped and fussy cut a few of the house images from London Mouse on my masking paper and slowly built a city scene by using my masks and stamping over them to give the impression that there is a foreground of buildings ,as well as a background of buildings.
I coloured my buildings in with Copic Markers and then stamped, die cut, and coloured the bunnies from Strike up the band.
Here are the Copic colours I used:
Buildings: YG06, YG11, V06, V04, V01, R22, RV21, E47, E43, Y06, Y11, B00, B02
Bunnies: E47, E43, B97, B95, B93, Y08, Y06, B00, C1, 0, R22, R29, E31
Next, I die cut the top and bottom panel using Mama Elephants Landscape trio. The bunnies were positioned and adhered to the bottom panel, then both panels were adhered using foam tape to create a bit of dimension.Here’s my finished card:
Using this method, I also created a few more similar cards using MFT sets…
Stamp masking is a great technique and I encourage you to give it a try if you haven’t done it before because the end results look very clean. I find that sometimes when building a scene using die cut images, the white border around the die cut images sometimes takes away from the scene. In retrospect, instead of buying masking paper, I guess you could also use a Post-it note but making sure to stamp on the sticky side so at least half the mask is adhesive.
