Rubberstamping 101: How to Mask

Basic masking allows you to stamp several images over each other without marring the previously stamped images. The process is simple, but the resulting creation will be amazing.

1. Stamp the image you want to appear in the foreground of your piece.

2. Stamp the same image on another piece of scratch paper, cut out the image just inside the outer lines of the image.

3. Place this ‘cut out’ image over the original stamped image on your project. Select your background stamp, then ink and stamp over the masked image.

Remove the cut out image and vola’ a perfect work of art.

That's about it...good luck!
