The second challenge is PEELING AWAY THE LAYERS. Use one of several masking techniques listed in the challenge post.
I used two techniques for this card - Reverse Masking and Faux Tearing. I stamped the Penny Black tree first, then laid the reverse mask over the image. I cut a sheet of typing paper the same size as the card front (4.25 x 5.5). Then cut a window out 1 inch from all sides. Over the reverse mask I added a 2nd layer of torn sticky notes under the tree trunk. Geometric stamps in SU! inks for the "fall leaves" create an autumn tree. The next step was to use a brayer to add the purple layer under the trunk and it was stamped with a darker purple swirl stamp.
