Diamond Girl in Distress

Here is a tag for the Tag Your It challenge diamonds. This tag was an experiment in masking. First I stamped the girl on my tag and then I stamped another on a spare sheet of paper. I cut out the mask of the girl and place it on top of my stamped image. I then stamped the diamond pattern. I inked the blue accents by putting Distress Ink on Cut and Dry foam and dabbing it where I wanted it. The last step was to used the ink stain stamp from Invoke to make it look more distressed.. I store my masks in the same binder as the unmounted stamp so I can use is again.
