How to Mask a Fun Leading Family Photo + Video!

 

Today I show you how to use masking to create a Leading Family Photo, and in fact there are two photos!  One is a ‘Ye Olde’ family and the other is ‘Bright’.

I figured as I was going to the ‘effort’ (and when I say effort I mean lifting the lid of the MISTI a few times) to stamp and mask my scene, why not make two versions!

I love how these bright colours totally change up the look of the photo, even with the same scene.  I totally blame the Little Gentleman, it’s all his fault for wanting some family time…..

All I needed to do was add the Leading Gentleman, City Lady and the Little Lady with some Copic colouring.
……ooh, I almost forgot, the frame is embossed using the Fine Frames Cover Die from Altenew (I just trimmed out the middle).

My second card is coloured in ‘sepia’ style and the Antique Frames from Penny Black were perfect to create the ragged edge.

I added a background using A Splash of Color from Altenew (my apologies but this is no longer at the Ellen Hutson Online Store) and a sentiment from the Everyday Hero Lady.

I know it was a lot of colouring today, but it’s my ‘relaxation’ time, so the theory is that I had extra relaxation time with more colouring wink!

  1. OH My Goodness… now I’m struggling to pick a favorite – no need really, because I love them equally! Your fix to the daughter is undetectable, my friend… you really have created the perfect family photo… when does THAT ever happen irl?? xx
    =]

  2. What FANTASTIC cards!!!! I just love them both! I’m wondering how to color the sepia version with colored pencils (since I don’t have copics). Seriously, Therese, you WAY out did your self!! As we would say in Boston: “Wicked Cool”!! I agree … can’t tell where the fix is … and I seriously looked!! Look forward to seeing granny. Thank you.

  3. PS — That Mary Tyler Moore show saying “we gonna make it after all”, cracks me up and is worth seriously considering the stamp set just for that!

  4. Both cards are awesome, I love how the sepia one came out and also how the bright family version came out too. Love the save on the unmasked arm, I’ve done that too in the past and you honestly can’t even tell in the pictures. Thanks for sharing with us Therese!

  5. How darling is that family!! Loved the Sepia family, well like both. I liked that you explained your process in precise instructions and how to fix errors. Thanks for sharing some inspiration.

  6. You’d never know there was a mis-stamp on the colored card, Therese. Both are so perfect and the sepia one is different and very vintagey.

  7. Hi Therese, okay, I looked and I can’t see the booboo repair on the little lady’s arm, so you fixed it expertly! The colorful version is wonderful, too! I love how the background in the color version looked like trees and in the sepia version, it looked like a brick wall (at least in my imagination). Another brilliant creative adventure! Thank you! : )

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
