Today's Tipsy Tuesday post from Sweet Stamping Treats is about masking. Masking is a way to add a background to paper without coloring in the stamp. Normally you wold stamp the image on a piece of post-it or some other kind of sticky paper, but you can't do that with digi stamps.But you can still mask your project, which is what I did on my picture frame using the Violet Fairy stamp from the last blog hop.
I take a nice thin, light colored sticky-note and put it over the stamps so that I can trace out the shape of the stamp I want to mask.
This is what it looks like.Then the outline out of the sticky-note.
For this simple background I used a blue cats-eye chalk, and stamped it around the image until I liked the amount of color on it.
Then I removed the post it.
And this is what my finished image looked like (before I framed it).
