Hello everyone! We had a great time last week, enjoying frosty drinks with our fellow crafters at Drunken Stampers!
I generally go with the first technique. This avenue of masking is awesome and you can make it as easy or hard as you like. Apparently I prefer horribly over complicated.
For instance, there are tons of "masks" available for sale, with designs ranging from hip to sweet. I cut my own. And I don't recommend it.
Cutting your own plastic masks is daunting, at best, and creating homemade vinyl masks ... ahm ... vinyl sticks. One assumes that this usually is among the most positive attributes of vinyl.
However, when you're trying to stick, remove, move, stick, stamp, remove, stick, ink and remove ... you're going to hear the sound of tearing paper long before your project is finished.
This DOES result in one bonus: An opportunity to shout all of your favorite four-letter words.
Also, while many masking projects can be done with one or two stamps and roughly the same number of inks, We at My House prefer to use eight inks, four stamps, two masks, an edge punch and chipboard embellishments.
Honestly! Whee! Despite my own ineptness at masking I often use this technique to create projects with soft, but bright, colors and images.
So? What are you waiting for? Let's see what you create with masks for this week's Drunken Stampers challenge!
