Sweet 'n Sassy Blog Hop Day #2

It is Day 2 of the SNSS blog hop and I'm the 4th stop of the day! You may have come here from Faith's blog but if not, make sure you hop on over there and follow the hop to see the creation's of rest of my amazing fellow DT members. They are showcasing so many of Sweet 'n Sassy's amazing stamp sets. I decided to make a card using my favorite Sassy Owl sets. The owls are actually from two different sets but with the magic of masking, here they are together!


If you haven't masked before, it really is easy - you just have to decide how you want your finished image to appear. Basically the image in the very front (open-eyed owl) is stamped first, then masked. The next image is stamped and will appear behind the first once the mask is taken off. The image you want in the very back is the last thing you stamp (in this case the tree branch).


I colored my images with Prismacolors and OMS, masked them (yet again) and airbrushed the background with my copic system. I used my SU! Top Notch and then adhered that to the inner square which is popped up onto the main card with dimensionals. I ran a length of sheer black ribbon behind it.


The sentiment was also airbrushed and is from yet another SNSS set. It is great how you are able to mix all the SNSS sets up and come up with different cards all the time.
Stamps Sets used: A True Friend, Owl Occasions, Sweet Dreams

Well, your next stop on this blog hop is Sarah. Hop on over and have a great day. Tomorrow I'll have a new card for Sketch Saturday. It is quite a sketch - you'll want to play along!

Thanks for stopping by!

a great card Jeanette, love the 2 owls together, looks like they were meant to be together.
What do you use to mask? do you stamp on a second piece of paper or do you use the masquepen liquid?
