Spotlighting Part of a Stamp by Joanne Wardle
This is the card I made for yesterday's "gal pals" challenge. This quick tutorial shows how to use just a selected part of a stamp, very simply. It's another way of "spotlighting" for this month's theme
I wanted the card to Say BFF and I liked the letters from Stampotique's fabulous stamp.
To use just these letters, I stamped the stamp onto copy paper and created a stamp mask for each letter as shown, by cutting away just the part of the image that I want to appear on my work.
to use, ink the stamp and then carefully attach the mask with tape to the block. making sure all unwanted bits of the stamp are covered.
Make sure you remember to ink the stamp before attaching the mask!
Stamp the stamp (using a positioner if required).
In this case I stamped the letters and girls onto patterned paper, and added "forever" from the word collage stamp.
This is an easy way to extend the use of your stamps, I hope you enjoyed it
