Combining Masks and Stamping for a Pop Art Effect

I combined this mask set with a background stamp to create a pop art feel.

Die cut a topper from Clarity stencil card using the 5” x 4” nested rectangle die and a mat from black card using the corresponding nested rectangle picot die.
Lay the cloud section of the Build a Scene Hills and Clouds mask towards the top of the topper, ink up the A6 Woven Fabric Textiles Mixed Impressions stamp with Stormy Sky Distress Oxide and stamp above the mask. Blend a little Stormy Sky Distress ink over the top with a Clarity stencil brush and remove the mask.
Mask off the top section. Repeat this time using Broken Chine Distress Oxide and ink.
Mask off at the top and this time add the third mask down. Add stamping and ink in Stormy Sky again.
Mask off the top of the topper and add the fourth mask down. This time use Rustic Wilderness Oxide with the stamp above and below the mask. Blend ink as before.
Mask off above and below the blank area and add stamping/ink in Peeled Paint. Remove all the masking.
Using the corresponding Distress pens, add lines between each segment of stencilled area. Add a black line below the house using a Posca pen and colour in the house too.
Mat up the topper and add it to the front of a 6” x 6” white card blank.
To finish, continue the black line across the front of the card and add one of the Grunge Trees from the Bijou Landscape collection in Black Soot Distress Archival ink.
