Faux Layer Masking Technique

Hello!  Need a fun new technique?  How about something quick and simple, but Oh, So Cool!  One of my favorites is the Faux Layer Masking Technique.

Faux Layer 4

 This technique is easy and gives the illusion that your card has an extra layer.

 

To create this cool illusion, you need to:

1) Cut a 4" X 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.

2) Next, take a piece of thin scrap paper such as printer paper or notebook paper and tear it in half to form your 2 masks.

3) Lay one of the torn paper masks on the Whisper White cs so that it covers (or masks) approximately 1-1/2" of the bottom. Use a few spots of Dotto temporary adhesive to hold in place.

4) Add the remaining torn paper mask to cover or mask the top of the card stock.  Place it about 1-1/2" from the first mask with the torn edges facing each other.  Again, use a few spots of Dotto temporary adhesive to hold in place.

6) Ink the large open flower using Pacific Point ink and stamp onto a piece of scrap paper, then (without reinking) mostly onto the unmasked area of card stock and partially on the mask as shown.  Do this twice.

7) Ink the small open flower using Daffodil Delight ink and stamp immediately as shown.

8) Ink the leaf using Wild Wasabi ink and stamp onto a piece of scrap paper, then (without reinking) onto the card stock as shown.

10) Remove masks and stamp "hello" using Pacific Point ink.

11) Fold a half sheet of Wild Wasabi card stock in half to form your card base and mount your stamped layer onto it to complete your card.
