Copic Color Challenge #54

I've been writing down the colors for a Copic Color Challenge for weeks, but life kept getting in the way. Today, I decided since I had a bunch of new Maggies (thanks, Cindy) to at least try one. The challenge was to use BG15 (the flowers), B93 (the baby's clothes) and Y21 (the pacifier).

I've had several comments on the masking technique and some confusion as to how I do it. I hope this helps:

1. Stamp the image you plan to use for your project - this is the image you will color:

2. Stamp the same image again on very lightweight paper. I use printer paper. Cut this image out and place repositionable double sticky tape on the back:

3. Place the cut image on top of the first image you stamped:

4. Position your next stamp. You can use a Rubber Stamp Positioner to determine where you will stamp your second image - then stamp your next image over the masking.

5. Remove the masking:

6. Color your image:

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions.
