Reverse Masking

This is one of the SIX fun BIRTHDAY CARDS
we will be stampin' up at the next
Birthday Card Class
at Coffee Crossing in New Albany.

For just $15, you can make
(two of three different designs.)
Check out all three designs at this link

You'd better hurry and order the
"Henry Says" stamp set!
(w-#128090... $29.95 or c-#128093... $21.95)   
It's only available through May 30th!
You can order it through my online store...

Henry is SO EASY to add color to when you use the
"Reverse Masking Technique."

Simply stamp the image only typing paper.

Using a Hobby Blade (Exacto Knife, etc), trim around
the entire image leaving any area that won't need color.
For example, I don't want Henry's mouth
to have the same color as his body.
Therefore, I included his mouth AND
the hoove of his front leg.
Including the hoove is the only way I could
also include his mouth in the mask.

Then stamp the image onto card stock.

Place mask directly over stamped card stock
Use different colors as to highlight or shade.

Remove mask and be amazed at how easy that was!

I hope you can join us for the class!
