Masking is a fantastic technique which allows you to overlap stamped images. A flower stamp can be used with masking so it looks like some are sitting in front or behind each other – almost like an optical illusion!

YOU WILL NEED:
Stamps: My Favorite Things, Wildflowers; sentiment
Ink pad, Versafine, Onyx Black
Cardstock: white, yellow
1. Stamp the flower heads and leaves onto masking paper. Leave to dry, then cut out; you will need more than one mask of each image.
2. On white card, 10cm x 14cm, stamp the larger flower head at the bottom centre so it overlaps the edge. Allow the ink to dry and cover the stamped image with the mask, making sure it is lined up correctly.
3. Keep the mask on and stamp another flower either side so they overlap the mask. Cover the other blooms with masks, then stamp leaves and flowers, overlapping. Continue to build up the flowers and leaves until you are happy with the layout.
4. Stamp a sentiment at the top. Remove any masks and colour in the design. Cover the front of a blank, 10.5cm x 14.5cm, with yellow card and matt the stamped image onto it. Finish with gems.
