No, I'm not planning for Halloween already...although it's not a bad idea!  Today's challenge at My Time To Craft is MASKING.  

This is a very simple technique.  All you need is some sticky notes and scissors.  In order to create a look that images are behind/in front of each other, you need to stamp your images on the sticky notes and cut them out.  Stamp your first image as you normally would, then cover it with one of your 'masks' made from the sticky notes.  Stamp the image again, overlapping the first image that is covered with the mask.  If you wish to stamp more images, keep using your masks, and, as in this example, you'll have whole bouquet of flowers!

I finshed this card with some inked edges, twine and a button!
Be sure to stop over at My Time To Craft to see what the rest of the Design Team has in store for you and share your own creation!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!  We're having temperatures in the 115 degree range.  Hopefully, it's a little cooler where you are!

Ooh this is gorgeous Ann!! what a fab image you've created with the stamp… I love the pretty papers and colour combo… and the twine detail finishes it off perfectly!! :-))
Gracious - 115 degree would be too hot for me!! I would have to stay by my fan and lots of iced drinks!!
Hope you have a lovely weekend!!
Take Care
Big hugs
