Multiple Masking | Challenge Time at Create A Smile

Would you like to know an easy way to create a seascape scene without layers of paper?

Hello Everyone!
Today a new challenge starts at Create a Smile and our theme for the next three weeks is Water.
For my today's card I used Create A Smile GULL-GANG Clear Stamps* ( SSS | CRT ) and various masks in several steps to achieve a layered look.

I use masks often to add depth to my cards and avoid multiple layers of paper. 

And frankly, I am not that good at fussy cutting as some patient card makers. 

Tips on Making This Card:

  1. Trace a rectangular frame with a pencil and position a seagull stamp off the edge.
  2. Stamp a seagull down and cover the impression with a mask.
  3. Stamp a wood and french fries and also cover them with fussy cut masks.
  4. Mask off the edges of the card panel with a temporary tape along the traced frame borders.
  5. Mask off a lower part of an opening and blend Distress inks to create sky.
  6. Remove the lower mask and cover the blended sky. Now blend Distress inks to create sea waters.
All images were stamped with alcohol friendly ink and coloured with Copic Sketch markers.

When I have finished colouring, I traced the frame with a pigment ink black pen (AMZUK | AMZUS).
