I then started stamping the first dog image repeatedly in a line across the bottom of my piece of whisper white cardstock cut at 4 x 5 1/4. I stamped the first dog image, then used one of the masks I created to cover this image before stamping the next one. I repeated this pattern of masking and stamping to create lines of stamped dogs. When I got to the center of the card, I stamped the other dog image that I wanted to color as the highlight. I used that mask to cover that image to continue stamping my pattern.
After completing all the stamping, I then started the coloring. I used my Blender Pen and some ink pads to color the dog. I stamped his hat and tie onto some thick whisper white cardstock with the same black ink and colored those with the Blender Pens as well. I then fussy cut them out and adhered them to the dog with dimensionals.
The rest of the card came together easily. I adhered the masked and stamped piece to a piece of basic black cardstock which was then layered on a card base of thick whisper white. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set and was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed in white. I cut the sentiment down and glued to the front of the card.
I plan on doing a video of how I made this card to show my masking technique. I have not had a chance to sit down and record it. I will be away for a few days on a vacation with some friends so I won't be posting again until next week. I will have this video ready to release next week sometime.
Thanks for stopping by and go give your furry friends a kiss!! :)
