Hello Ai Fans!! Dana here with my very first Ai post! Today's card features one of the new Tryfold stamps, Suburb! I wanted to feature a different way to use these awesome stamps by doing a little masking to create a scene!!
I started by stamping one of the houses off set from the center. Then i stamped the left and right sides of the stamp on a full sticky post it note. I don't bother reinking the stamp, there's enough ink left to still get a good image. Next i cut out both sides and covered up their perspective sides.
I stamped the other two houses on each side of first house. Peal off the post it notes and wa-la two houses behind my first house!
To keep things simple (and more interesting, i think anyway) i only colored the first house that stamped (the middle house). Whenever i'm in the mood to color but don;t have time too i use Inktense pencils and a colorless Copic marker to color my image! Its really easy (and fast!) to do! I just color the image with the pencils and then use the colorless blender to blend the color. This will stain your nib so beware!! It doesn't bother me, but just a heads up in case it bothers you! :)
To finish i stamped the sentiment, trimmed the panel, wrapped some twine around and tied it in a bow. I added the panel to some blue card stock, then a white card base. Last i added a few blue sequins!!
I hope you have a wonderful day! Happy Stamping!!
