SDC22: Put On Your Best Mask

Hi everyone!  It's time for the first Stampotique Challenge of 2011!!  This week, Vicki has challenged us to use any type of masking technique in your creation using stamps from any company you like.  Of course, if you have Stampotique images, we'd love you to include them in your project! Just add your project to the Stampotique Challenge Blog post to be included in the draw for a fabulous $30 gift certificate to the Stampotique Store!

There are so many different techniques that could qualify as masking that I had a hard time deciding which one to incorporate into this challenge.  I finally decided to use the basic approach of creating paper masks from Post-It Notes.  Here, the heart has been stamped and masked, then Winter has been stamped and masked and finally the background was stamped.  When the masks were both removed, the following scene remained to be colored and distressed.

All stamps by Stampotique:
Love You Heart, Winter, Daniel's Hearts, Abstract Foliage

Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.
