Masked and Blended Falling Flowers & Cool Treats

I love the stylised flowers in the Falling Flowers stamp set and decided to have another go at masking and building up a beautiful assortment of blended flowers in various colours. 

I stamped up a couple of flowers onto two large Post-It notes which have low tack adhesive across the whole of the back, and cut them out.   I used these as masks.  I stamped out a single flower onto my Whisper White layer, then covered it with one of the masks.   Then I stamped again half way off and half way onto the masked flower.   I then used the second mask to cover the second flower and stamped again.   I simply repeated the process again and again until I had a collection of flowers.  I added some stamped leaves too.  TOP TIP here - store the masks in your stamp set for future use !

Then I selected some of my Blends and had a nice relaxing time colouring and blending, which I always find both absorbing and therapeutic.

I absolutely love the stamped sentiment which is from the Cool Treats photopolymer stamp set.

I layered my card onto a piece of black card stock and then finally onto a note card.

I think the result is pretty "cool".

Masking is a fun technique - and if you haven't tried it, I would highly recommend it.

Well I hope you like it.  Thanks for looking and I would love you to pop back again.

I am off to make the most of some much appreciated sunshine.

Enjoy your day.

  1. Linda, would you consider doing on video on this technique, please. I am getting a little confused (yes, I am 72). Mine didn't turn out even a quarter as nice as yours. THANK YOU in anticipation.

  2. I love the masking you have done here with the large floral images. I haven't done any masking for a while now, so I think I am going to look for a large floral image stamp and recreate a design similar to yours if that is ok.
