Challenge # 10 ~ Masking several stamps

Big congratulations! Please send your name and address to :  TOMICblog@gmail.com with subject "winner TOMIC #9" so Magnolia can send you a secret prize!

Now we want to welcome you to this week's new challenge which is

Before the challenge starts I will show you how to mask stamps together:
1. Here are a few things you need
2. The stamps is the most important:) I use to place them first, as I want the scene to be. As you can see I have Tilda in front, and the scenery behind her.
The two stamps I want to mask together is:
Sweetie Tilda 
Bird Background
Both from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011
3. Since Tilda is in front of my scene, I have to stamp her first, and then mask her. 
I use a post-it-note and water colour paper. (Use the paper you normally colour your images on).
And I will later explain why it is clever to use post-it-notes.
4. Then I stamp Sweetie Tilda on both papers, as you can see under.
5. Then I have to cut the one on the post-it-note out ("Yellow-Tilda").
 6. Cut, cut, cut.... I am done:)
7. Then I place the "Yellow-Tilda" on the "White-Tilda". And since I have used a post-it-note I have glue behind some parts of the yellow paper. 
Then you can be sure that the paper sits perfectly all the time.
8. Now it is time to stamp "The Bird Background" upon Tilda. I like to use the acrylic block with stripes, then it is easier to place the image like I want it.
9. Okay, ink the image:)
10. Place the background stamp on the masked Tilda.
11. Now it looks like this. It is alway exciting to see if the scene looks fine.
12. It looks perfect! Now I can start the colouring.
I can't wait to see your masked images this week!! 
And remember, you can mask more than two stamps also.
