I first took a Stix2 Masking sheet. This is an A4 sheet of paper with a plastic protective cover. You stamp onto the paper side, cut out and remove the plastic sheet to reveal a sticky side. You can use this fabulous product to create masks using your stamps and dies. You can create a positive or negative mask - depending on whether you want to mask out the monster or the background around the monster in this case! I stamped the three monsters and cut them out as neatly as I could. The big plus with this product, is that you can use it many times before it becomes too battered to use - simply store on the back of your packet of stamps so the masks are always to hand whenever you use the stamps!
I stamped the middle monster onto my white card and then carefully stuck the mask over the top, I then stamped the other two monsters and then stuck on their masks too. With all my monsters masks I went very splodgy over the top with my Distress Stains - Wild Honey and Broken China - Lots of splashes for great effect! Then set aside to dry and peel off your masks once dry. Then mount onto black card and then onto a card where you have edged it with the broken china stain to create a matching border. Then stamp your greeting and edge with some fineliner lines.
This is such a fun technique to try.. go on and get splodging!
