Woodland Fae


Masking. I've fallen in love with this technique. It's not complicated to do, just tedious. First, I stamped the fairy in the middle. I didn't want to use the full image of the fairy, so I placed a sheet of post it note on the bottom half of the card. This way only a portion of her dress would be stamped (gave her a more camouflaged image). Then I stamped another image on a post it note. I cut out the post it note and placed it on top of the image on my card, aligning it carefully. Then I stamped the leaf around the image in various inks. I added the smaller leaf image on top. Water colored the fairy and the blank area around her face.

This is such a beautiful card. Thanks for explaining the technique. I never would have thought to combine the images this way.
