Painter Stamp
 
 Supplies Needed
  • Post it note
  • Stamps of choice
  • Ink of choice
  • Cardstock
 
 Instructions:

I stamped the painting elf onto cardstock.  I then stamped it again onto the post-it note and cut it out, leaving a larger area around the brush tip (this is the part he hasn't painted yet.)

Carefully put the mask over the stamped image.  Then stamp your background image (this is what he has painted). 

Remove the mask and color the masked image.  Trim and mount onto a mat and complete the card.

 

*TIP*  Keep your masks in an envelope. It prevents you from having to cut it out again the next time you want to use it.

 
 Notes:
Card by Becky Partan. Floral Background stamp unknown.
