  1. Cut a piece of white card stock to 4 by 5.25 inches.
  2. Stamp the zig zag border with honey mustard ink along the bottom.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  3. Stamp the dogs.  I used my stamp press to determine placement.  I put both dogs and the phone booth on my press and adjusted the stamps until they fit nicely in the available space.  Then I removed the phone booth, inked up the dogs with black ink and stamped.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  4. Remove the dogs from the press, place the phone booth on it and stamp with red ink.  The press and my stamp are clear so it was easy to see where to position it.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  5. Stamp the dogs and the phone booth onto eclipse paper and cut out to make masks.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  6. Place the masks on the card stock.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  7. Using the circle punch, punch a circle from the post-it note and use the negative piece to make a stencil for the sun.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  8. Sponge the yellow and orange inks through the stencil.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  9. Remove the negative part and replace it with the punched out circle.  Sponge the blue and pink colors for the sky.  Sponge some green along the zig zag border for the ground.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  10. Remove all masks and color the dogs with Copic markers.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  11. Stamp the sentiment at the top of the piece, mount it onto a kraft card base and you're done.

I hope you join us this month and use masking to create a card.
