Our Challenge for you at Tildas Town this week is ‘Name Your Technique’ I’ve chosen ‘Masking’ using Tilda Off Shore and Rescue Tower from Magnolias Summer Memories Collection.

This is what I came up with:

My images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E47, E44, E43, E42, E40 clothes: R27, R24, R22, R0000, B02, B01, B00, B0000, W5, W3, W1, W00 rescue tower: E44, E43, E42, E41

To create the masked image I fist stamped Tilda onto my Copic card and then stamped her again onto scrap paper. I cut out my scrap image and secured her onto my Tilda on the Copic card with removable tape, I then stamped the Rescue Tower over the top so that Tilda appeared to be sitting on the tower and then removed the mask. The trick with masking is to make sure you are very careful when cutting out your image and cut on the lines to create an exact match, this way you don’t have blank space between images when masking.
