what a great video, I wondered what masking was, could you explain why you need that piece of paper to put over the stamped image? What is the purpose of masking. Thanks

Hi Charmaine,
Masking (the piece of paper put over the stamped image) is a stamping technique that allows multiple images to be stamped without overlapping each other. This is a super simple technique that can be fun to use when you want to create whole piece images or collages. In the video I was able to create a whole pumpkin and stem without the pumpkin showing through the stem by masking it off first. Enjoy!
