Tutorial Tuesday with Peggy

Hey everyone!  Peggy here with this week's tutorial.  I racked my brain trying to come up with a tutorial this week and then I thought of masking, which is perfect for all of the adorable sitting collection (and so many other wonderful TGF stamps)!  Okay, let's get started!

First, I stamped Anya from the Sitting Lovely set, twice, once on X-Press It blending card and once on a post it note.

When I cut out my image, I cut it out just inside of the line so that when I stamp over the mask the lines from the second image are really close to or even touching the first image. I'm sure that is clear as mud, but you will see what I mean in a minute! lol  I also drew a very light pencil line to help me line up my 2nd image.

My next step was to stamp over my mask.  Pretty self explanatory, I think.  :)

Here is the finished image, on the left side of Anya you can see that I didn't trim my masked image as closely as I did on the right.

And here is my finished card and image all colored up!

I hope this has been helpful for you, if you have any questions feel free to let me know!  I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day!
