Fourth of July Layout and Masking Technique

Here's a layout I made some time ago for a CTMH gathering and I am finally getting around to putting pictures on it.  I used the Fanfare Paper Pack (X7138B) and Paper Lantern Stamp Set (C1458).  I love this stamp set.  I used the masking technique on the multi-colored lattern.  Masking is when you cover part of the stamp imaged with a post it in order to achieve a different effect.  For this example, I stamped the image on 3 different post its and then cut out a different part of the lantern on each one.  You then ink the stamp in your desired color, lay one of the post its in place on the page and stamp.  Repeat changing the stamp color and the post it until lantern is complete.  Here's how it turned out!
