Love this Technique!

Monday, September 14, 2015

It's Monday! Which means that there's another challenge for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.
This week the challenge is to create something with your favorite technique.
My favorite technique isn't fancy. It's masking! Masking is one of the first techniques that we're taught as stampers. It's simple, but allows us so much freedom. Masking allows me to take any image and alter it to fit a space. It's like magic!
Making my own "postage" was a lot of fun!

What's your favorite technique? Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and you could receive a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp. We draw a new winner each week. Your project could be chosen for our designer spotlight!

    I haven't done much masking, need to practice more, feeling INSPIRED - THANK YOU for sharing :)

  5. This is gorgeous! LOVING the colors and those leaves!!!!!!!!

  6. You need to get a hold of the Postal System and let them be their official postage stamp designer! Seriously! I just got a set of stamps that were super-creepy clown heads and I thought to myself, "Really? This is the best we've got?" I think it was a tribute to the circus, but my point is that I was creeped out (no offense to the stamp designers). And then I see your gorgeous postage stamps! In a perfect world, I would have your stamps staring at me from the drawer instead of those psychotic clown eyes! Eeekk!

  7. Gotta love the heart of it... especially in STAMPtember®!! Beautiful design, Michelle :)
