Tutorial Thursday: Masking with Dies

Hello! Happy Thursday to you all..

Joy here bringing you another Tutorial Thursday..

This week I am sharing a Halloween card with you all and using masking with dies..

Using some masking paper, I trimmed a piece down to measure slightly smaller then a standard size 
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card, I die cut the Stitched Circle out of the trimmed piece of masking paper and taking another piece of masking paper, I die cut the Scary Tree, keeping both negative and positive pieces to use on the card...

Using the negative piece of masking with the die cut circle, place onto a trimmed piece of white card stock of the same size..

Once the masking paper is adhered down to the white card stock, start to apply distress inks to create a moon feature..

Removing this masking paper, I then added the die cut Scary Tree, using the negative die cut of the tree, applying black soot ink..

Once this has had time to dry, this is where the positive pieces come into play, applying directly back over the inked sections, then start to apply different coloured distress inks to get the spooky sky scene..

Here is another look of the card, I also die cut some Eerie Bats and a sentiment from Egyptian Mummy Luka to add just a little more addition to the card..

I hope you take your dies out and see what scenes you can create using masking..

Thanks for stopping by today!
