Tip for Quick Masking

I have a quick masking tip/trick for you today.

When you are not up for cutting out lots of masks from masking paper (especially small ones)… try using clear embossing powder instead.

Quick Masking with Embossing Powder/Resist Technique

using Multi-Step Aloha! Clear Stamps and Multi-Step Big Leaves Clear Stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

added note: (dye inks yield the best results – pigment inks can still leave a stain of color)

Steps A, B, C for masking with embossing powderPhoto (A) – Two flowers stamped & dry. Next, embossed with fine detail clear EP (using step #1 stamp for full coverage and VersaMark). Tip: It is also a good time to do any embellishing with glitter pens before embossing.

Photo (B) – The red arrows show pink ink on top of the previously embossed flowers (the yellow and orange flowers) and the clear emboss acts as a mask for the pink flower.

Photo (C) – Before embossing the pink flower (same as done in photo A), clean unwanted ink off with Q-Tip. Tip: wipe the ink off towards the image you just stamped.
