I have a fun card to share today using a couple of stamps from my stash using a masking technique.
These two stamps are really old, the date on them is 1993, they are made by "Hook's Lines & Inkers" one is called Cat Tails and the other is Dazse. I bought these when I was in Cody, Wyoming in 2004 and haven't used them very often. I "googled" the company name and found lots of their stamps for sale on E Bay so I don't know if they are still in business or not.
Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink I stamped the cow on X Press It blending card and then stamped it on a post it note. I cut the cow out on the post it note for a mask and put it over the cow I'd first stamped. I then inked the Cat Tails stamp and stamped on either side of my cow. An oldie but goodie stamping technique called masking. I then colored my scene with Copic markers:
N1, N3, N5, N7, N9
E41, E42, E44, E47, E34
It's a large stamped image without Cat Tails but I like it even better with them so I had to keep my card layout simple. The sentiment I used is by Papertrey Ink. I tried to think of something cute that the cow might have to say but couldn't think of anything. Any ideas?
My pink paper is almost as old as my stamps... it's Stampin' Up! Pretty Ink Pink, the others are Mohawk Bright White & Astrobrights Eclipse Black.
