Masking... not something I've done before with stamping.

I've used masks when playing with sprays (Cosmic shimmers, Tattered angels) and I've masked areas when playing with a brayer to create backgrounds...I've never done masking with stamps but that's what the lovely folk over at "TOMIC" have asked for as part of their Challenge #10.

I so wanted to use the lovely little Pony-tail Tilda that I had won but didn't have any other suitable stamps to use with her. As I had a loyalty voucher from one of my local craft stores I decided to have a look and see what they had left in their stock of Magnolias and I found this cute trunk & signpost.
This was the first attempt at combining the two stamps and I didn't quite manage to line them up correctly.
Isn't it amazing the uses that can be found for Post-it notes...LOL
The second stamping was far more successful and I coloured the image with my Copics.
This is the finished card which I decided didn't need any frills or flounces - I just let the image stand as the main feature. Hope you like.....................
