I'm excited to share a simple masking tutorial with you today using the new stamp set Americana.  I started with the following products from LDRS Creative:  Raven Hybrid Ink, Americana stamp set, and Masking Paper.  I also used watercolor paper, a stamping platform and scissors.

I stamped the truck and sentiment first in the Raven Hybrid Ink.  I then stamped onto the masking paper the truck and the flowers so I could put them in the back of the truck and around the sides of the truck.  I then cut out the masks, especially around those places I knew I would need the mask.  I placed the mask over the truck and stamped my first set of flowers close to the cab of the truck.  Next, I covered the first stamped set of flowers with a mask and stamped right next to it.  I then repeated this process until the back of the truck was filled.  I also stamped once in front and in back of the truck with the flowers, again over the truck mask.

Once this was stamped, I added the sentiment.  I used a stamping platform because the watercolor paper is quiet textured and a platform allows for repeated stamping.  I didn't mind the rustic look though since the classic truck is an oldie but goodie.  I then colored my scene with watercolor markers and a watercolor brush.  Last, I chose beautiful papers from the Daisy Delights 6x6 paper pad.  What a beautiful set of papers!

I chose a green and a floral piece that matched my truck and watercolor scene.  I mounted the watercolored truck on a piece of green, then layers that on the floral.  I then added it to an A2 sized card.  I hope you enjoyed my step by step process.
