Technique #1 will feature the large background die from the Organic Beauty die set. Use the die to cut the image from the Masking Paper.  Voila, you’ve just created yourself a custom stencil. I wanted the background on the card to look like a lattice. Do you think I’ve achieved it?

By using my Blending Brush I was able to blend Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze.  Once blended, you just peel away the Masking Paper to reveal your pattern.  Break out all this large dies and have a play.

Technique #2 is an oldie but goodie, You can stamp an image onto the masking paper, cut it out and use it to create lots of dimension on your projects.  Just remember, whatever you stamp first will come forward.
