Hi everyone, Eloise here and today I’ll be using the Winter Woodland, Christmas Friends and Winter Wonderland stamp sets to create a one layer panel card. You could do this with a one layer card too, but doing it with a panel just adds a little dimension and a little extra to the card.
The thing you want to remember when masking to create a cluster scene like this is to stamp your images in the fore front first. So, for me it was the bird on the left-hand side. So I stamped that image first, then adhered the mask over top. Next I stamped the larger fox overlapping the bird a little. Then, adhered the mask over top of the fox and then stamped the boy image to the right, overlapping a little once again. This makes sure you’re stamping the images in the front first, so they are whole and the mask prevents any of the behind image overlapping the front image. So in the end, all your images are stamped in between each other and not over lapping each other. I hope this makes sense. Once all my images were stamped and a mask had been adhered over top, I created a snow bank mask and adhered that over top of my images too.

I then used some Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch to ink blend the sky. This is why I needed masks for the top images also because they needed to be masked off because of the ink blending. Once they were all ink blended, the best part is now. I get to remove the masks. I removed all the masks off the images and the results are just so much fun! Once all the masks were removed, I used Copic Markers to colour in all my images.
For my sentiment, I used the Christmas Friends stamp set and used the Season’s Greetings sentiment, cut it in half and then stamped it next to each other instead so it would fit at the bottom of my panel better. For a last finishing touch, I added a strip of black and white diagonal striped patterned paper and adhered it to my card base. Then adhered my panel with foam tape.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll catch you next time.
