Fussy Cut Masking !!

Hi crafty people,
Hope you all are creating awesome projects which makes all of us happy and stress free!!
This month we are researching on various stamping techniques few of which will be the old classic ones and few will be new and surprising !
My post for today mainly focuses on "masking" stamps which can create layered 3D impressions. Usually I mask my favourite girl " Tilda " with pretty backgrounds and  I call that"Basic Masking "
But today I m attempting a next level of masking which we will call " Extreme masking "
So without any delay lets begin this picture heavy tutorial with few instructions wherever needed :)

I am trying to create a floral arrangement using various stamps and believe me u can do a similar thing with stamps in your collection or if u wanna grow ur collection visit as the store is flooding with beautiful stamps .

Step 1: stamp the first image ( the one u want on top) with black ink 

Also stamp it on a post it note to create a Mask. Fussy cut the mask very carefully.

Step 2: place the mask over this to completely hide it . Now take next stamp u wanna layer behind . Stamp it .

Now keep masking and stamping the next images till u r happy with the outcome. 

Step 3: at this stage I decided to stamp the pocket watch to complete the arrangement.

And here is the result…isn't it pretty?

Step 4: colouring with copics or other medium ….

Guys I am sure u all will give it a try and the results will be mesmerising !!!
I pasted this panel on a journaling book cover and will send it out as a present to a very dear friend of mine...☺️

Here is the final pic ...
Please feel free to ask any questions about this technique and I will b more than happy to help u  !
All it needs is practice and a collection of few beautiful stamps .
Have a great day !!!
Arjita 😊
