Strong Roots Blog Hop (July 2021 SOTM)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring Strong Roots , which is the July 2021 SOTM . If you have come here from Miss. Carries Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

I am not a fan of masking but it was a great technique to use with this stamp sent to create a layered scene. I also thought the slimline card is a great option for this card.

*Decide how you want the layering, then start with the front images first and mask those images and you continue to stamp to the back.
*Instead of a waterbrush, I like to use a blending pen with watercolor pencils.

Products used are all Close to My Heart: Strong Roots stamp set, watercolor pencils, Black Ink, and Slimline Cards & Envelopes.
