Using Masks to Create a Negative Image on a Coloured Background

For this card I made good use of the masks which come with the peace filigree swirl stamps and the fairies 2 set (Claritystamp) to create a negative image.
Place the square framer shape stencil inner in the centre of a piece of 7” x 7” stencil card. Draw round lightly in pencil. Stamp the smaller Peace Filigree stamp along the bottom in Onyx Black Versafine ink and mask off.
Stamp the elf on a toadstool from Fairies 2 set in the same manner so it sits on the swirl.
Complete the frame using both curled filigree stamps, masking as required. Stamp the moon from the fairy stamp set into the centre and mask off.

Moving the swirl masks as necessary, use a stencil brush to add Midnight Blue Artistry ink all over the card.
Remove all the masks and trim back to 6” x 6”.
Using a dark blue, sharp watercolour pencil, outline all the swirls, the fairy and the moon.
Add Blessings and My Love from the matching sentiment stamp set in Cobalt Blue Archival ink.
Mat the panel onto a piece of dark blue sparkly card (6.5” x 6.5”).
To finish, add the whole thing to the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank.
