…pieces of what - Masking Tape. I thought I would try this technique with this awesome face image from Innovative Stamp Creations. I wanted to give the face a statue look.
The focal image was created by putting teeny tiny pieces of masking tape on a piece of cardstock - completely covered. I then sponged different colors from the background paper on the tape, stamped the image with Timber brown Stazon - added more ink for shadowing.
The background paper is a large polka dot from Basic Grey and I wanted to incorporate more of the new stamps onto this card. I used the large harlequin stamp, added Choc Chip ink with a sponge, stamped. Then I inked the stamp with Really Rust and stamped.
I cut all my layers and looked at the card (I put it on the floor and stand on my chair - chair has wheels - there could be a stamping accident some day) and I thought it still needed something… Hmmm copper swirls - that what it needed! I masked the harlequins and stamped parts of the swirls. I then added the copper swirls to the face image. Hopefully the copper shows in the picture!
I’m leaving for some retail therapy today - I hope you are having a great day!
Thanks for the visit!
