Victorian Ladies Card

Hello My dear Stamper Friends:
Today, I would like to share with you this "Victorian"/Vintage looking Card that I made for "Lost Coast Designs".
I used the set called "Harpers Women" and this rubber set comes with 4 different ladies. (see supplies below)



I decided to use 2 of the ladies and in order to make them look like there is one stamp, one lady behind the other I used the "masking" technique!

"Masking Technique":  this is one of those "basic" stamping techniques that you must include in your practice of stamping...
Just remember that whenever you want to use this technique have in mind that the first image that you are stamping is the one that you will see in the front. The others will be in the back even though you are stamping them after the first one!



The technique consist in covering an stamped image so that other images may be placed over it. Creating complex groups of stamped images.
In my case, one lady looks a little bit behind the other one and I colored very lightly with "Copics" their dresses

Masking step by step:
1- stamp your image ( the one that you want to be in the front) on your final project
2- make a mask: 
- stamp again this same image on a "sticky" paper ( I use "eclipse" masking paper/tape) but you can use old plain printers paper, add low tack double sided tape on the back to make it "sticky" or use "post it" notes...
- cut around the image
- tip:  cut a little bit inside the image, so the next images will not have a "white" line/gap..
3- place mask on top of your "original" stamped image
4- stamp a second/different  image so it overlaps on one side of the mask
5- keep doing this if you want more images behind the first one
6- remove mask to reveal your composition...


I used several "Spellbinders" labels which match very well the theme of Victorian/Vintage looking card added some ribbon, flower and pearls

I hope you can try to use more than one stamp image in your project and use this fun technique of "Masking" that creates dimension into your projects...

Have a nice day and keep on crafting, hugs...
