I had a hard time getting started with the latest Make it Monday (mim14) – selective inking – because PTI does such a good job of breaking up stamps already. Often stems are separate from flowers, etc.
As I was browsing my stamp index I was so excited when I realized that Mailbox Greetings provides the perfect opportunity for selective inking. I’ve actually done a “single mailbox” from this set before, but I got it by cutting it out. This time I used tape to mask my image before inking. Then after inking, I remove the tape and presto – a perfectly inked partial image. Here is a link to the original stamp image; and below is a look at what the tape method looks like.
Cardstock: Pure Poppy, White, Lemon Tart, Simply Chartreuse( PTI);
