Mediterranean Moments and Beautiful You

This week I want to show you how to combine two stamp sets where the scale of the imagines are not quite the same.

The images in Mediterranean Moments are so beautifully detailed and make an excellent main feature or background. I have seen cards by others combining either gal in the Beautiful You stamp set and other stamp sets using the masking technique and the match up of these two sets works out really nice.

To create your own card, first stamp the umbrella gal in just a tad right of center and down a bit on a piece of Whisper White card stock. I used Basic Black Archival Ink. Then stamp the umbrella gal once again on a Post It (r) or a piece of scrap paper and trim along the outside lines (i.e. no white edges) to create the mask. Cover the umbrella gal with your mask and now stamp the sidewalk scene right over the top. VoilĂ   (Hint: You may want to try using the Stamp-a-ma-jig (TM) or at least practice a couple of times on scrap paper for perfect placement.)

In keeping with February's theme of coloring techniques, I used the Stampin' Write Markers. The image is trimmed to 2 1/2 "x 4" and layered on a 2 3/4" x 4 1/4" Pacific Point card stock.  The base layers are 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White on a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" Basic Black card stock and adhered to a Whisper White card base (A2).

Post a link to your card in the comments below or share with me on Facebook.
