Another Reverse Masking Experiment

The Ways to Use It challenge on SCS yesterday was to use autumn leaves on your project. I wanted to do another reversed mask design like the butterfly one I made earlier this week. I only had a small leaf die so I cut a leaf out, used the negative leaf to sponge the first leaf. Then I used the positive die cut to mask the sponged leaf and the negative leaf to sponge two more leaves. I then stamped the silhouettes using the negative mask and moving it around to complete the scene. I highlighted the images with a white gel pen. I used a Label 2 die to cut and mat the image. The background was embossed with the Cuttlebug Diamonds in the Rough folder.

Thanks for coming by!

Supplies: Stamps - Verve, PaperTrey; Paper - PaperTrey Stampers Select Vintage Cream; Ink - Marvy Dye ink, SU! Chocolate Chip; Misc - Spellbinders Label 2, Cuttlebug Leaf die, Cuttlebug embossing folder, white gel pen
