Combining Images or Masking at CCM&More

Hi All
There is a new challenge starting over at Crafty Cardmakers and More today.

Julie is hosting today and wants to see you combine (merge) two or more stamps in your creation. You might do this digitally or go down the traditional masking route. This is a challenge to merge two or more stamps together, please do not just stamp two times with different stamps, they need to be merged so that they appear as one stamp! We expect you to mask either with paper, masking fluid or digitally. Could you please TELL US what stamps you have combined (merged) and how.

I have used a couple of lovely old stamps on my card.
I think the leaf is by Hero arts and the sentiment is Stampendous, but I am quite prepared to be put right. (over to you Dorothy :O)) 
I stamped and embossed the Leaf Square and then masked it before stamping and masking the Birthday Sentiment Square around the first image.
To finish the panel off I masked the images again and then stamped around the edge with the leaf stamp.
The central panel has been coloured with Lightening Black Brilliance ink which looks grey/gold and green Gelly Roll Glaze pen.
The surrounding images have all been painted with Black Brilliance ink and then the leaves have been painted afterwards with a Clear wink of Stella pen.
I was trying to look for a couple of challenges to enter this in but my computer is not playing the game so I will just have to leave it for now.
Happy Crafting and hugs


  1. This is wonderful Kim! I just love that pop of green in the middle of all the greys and blacks! Great contrast with your borders too! love it, hugs :)

  2. A gorgeous card. I love the monochromatic backdrop and the leaf stamp being highlighted with colour. The lightening Brilliance ink is lovely and the Wink of Stella adds a beautiful shimmer. Sally.x.
