Creating a Mountain of Tacos | Masking Paper Technique

Taco Tuesday anyone?! Sounds delicious to me and this stamp from The Ink Road Stamps Iconic set is making me hungry. I think masking is one of those techniques for stampers that is so versatile and can be used in many different ways. I wanted a mountain of tacos to set the mood for this card.

Watch the video here. 

I started off making 2 masks by stamping the taco image from the Iconic stamp set on to masking paper. I was able to use just those 2 masks for the bottom layer but as I built up I did end up needing another mask. But these stamps are easy to cut out so it did not take much time at all. 

The hardest part, I think, is figuring out where to stamp that first image to begin the masking process. I picked the middle because it made the most sense to me for a mountain. Because it is stamped and masked first it will be at the foreground but I did stamp it off the paper so it blends well with the rest. 

Most of the time I can usually get a couple of uses out of the masks, these were pretty well used and the black ink had started to bleed through. So I did end up tossing them when I was done. 

I kept the Copic coloring pretty basic and added the white gel pen after coloring them to add in the highlight. Also, I really like how there was a "white space" on the left side. To keep that "white space" I added the heat embossed sentiment over the top of the taco mountain. Which helps break up the images but the sentiment is small enough so that I don't loose all that coloring hard work.  

For the inside I simply stamped the Taco image in gray. Below is a list of the Copic colors and all the other products I used.
