This installment of the Techniques Blog Hop is “ Magically Masked”, featuring all the ways a crafter can utilize masking to add multiple layers of interest to a stamping project, without adding bulk.
There are many ways to use masking in stamping.
I’m sure that you are stopping by from Marciava Warrell's Blog and that you were very inspired by her post showing you how she used masking.
I chose to use the alphabet stickers that are in the current Central Park product suite as masks.
While masking can be done with a goal for precision in mind, I wanted to have just enough of the letter showing that the title was readable but not super neat. I love that sloppy, mish-mash watercolor look. I chose the red and blue as the theme of the whole project. This is the title page to my pages about my recent trip to Las Vegas. (I guess that’s pretty obvious.) I'm just getting started telling this story!
I did the water coloring using inks (re-inkers) and after letting it dry, peeled up the stickers, to reveal the masked area that remained. I did use a piercing tool and a Tombow Mono Sand eraser to get some of the sticky bits off the project. This is not a perfect bit of masking...but I hope it gives you an idea of how to use stickers as masks.
Thanks for stopping by and hope on over to visit MAZ WOOD's blog and see how she has used the masking technique.
