10th Day of the 31 Days of Halloween




 
What is a Skeleton’s favorite song.
Bad to the Bone

One of my favorite stamping techniques is masking. You stamp an image on a piece of copy paper and cut it out. Then stamp the image on your project. Use the mask to cover the image and then stamp another image, the mask will protect a part of the first image. Confusing.....????


In the above photo, I started with "Who's There" from Third Coast , I made a mask of it, the trees and the skull, First stamping the door way, mask and stamp the trees ( Two Creepy Trees, Third Coast), mask the trees and the door and stamp skulls(Skull with splatters - Third Coast), and mask the skulls as needed.

And since I am hooked on my iPhone, I took a photo and ran it through several apps, finishing with WordFoto , an app in which you enter a phrase and then it applies the words to the photo.


Valerie is next at Third Coast

I have seen masking and read about it but for some reason have never taken the time to try it, but maybe I will now. What an inspiring piece. Gorgeous and spooky at the same time. Thank you for sharing your creation.

I love the skulls receding into the background but also being central images! Masking works when nothing else does and you are a master. Love it!
