La-La Land's Weekly Wednesday Challenge 45 - Try Something New

Yep, it's my weekly posting for La-La Land's Weekly Wednesday Challenge.  Our hostess, KIM, has challenged us, and that means you too, to TRY SOMETHING NEW.  I don't know about you, but I haven't tried everything when it comes to crafting.  So, I tackled a technique that I haven't done before and wanted to try . . . MASKING. 

Some of you may be more than familiar with how to mask and some may not.  Masking is a way to stamp an image right behind another image by using a "mask".  Here is my "mask" that I stamped and cut out.  I took the head of Bubble Lala and the body of Fairy Lala and put them together.  {{I used this mask before taking this picture, thus, the frills on Lala's hair.}}

I stamped the head of Bubble Lala on Neenah CS and then stamped the body of Fairy Lala so that the head and neck would connect.   I then used the mask that I made previously and placed it directly on top of the image I just stamped.  Finally, I inked up Fairy Lala and stamped her as close to the first image so that they were side by side.  Once that was done, I lifted the mask and voila . . . my 2 images masked together, one in front and one behind!  Here's my card.

A close-up  . . .

This is the inside of the card . . .

There you have it . . . I tried something new!  Come join us 'cause I know there is a technique or style you haven't tried.
