Masking ~ Train Scene

I'm slightly addicted to masking!
It really opens up more creative options.
Today I'll show my combination of two Tim Holtz stamps.
Example #1:
First I stamped the street lamp.
Next I used my own lamp mask (stamped & handcut),
covered the lamp & stamped the train right over it.
But I have to say the glitter train steam
is what really makes this card cool.
Example #2:
Just like the card, I stamped - masked - stamped.
Notice the small gap around the street lamp
where the stamp didn't quite make contact?
I just fill that in with a black gel pen,
essentially sketching in to fill the void.
Using my Distress Inks, Copic markers & more masking:
The train scene came to life!
Here are my masks, I'll be saving them for more projects!
This was a challenging project, but fun indeed.
I put the train in my 4 year old son's room.
He just loves trains.
I use this chicken wire frame to clip up photos, art & mementos
in his room.  It's a fun way to keep changing the look.
