Inking and stamping masks: A Studio L3 Compendium Challenge
Today we're looking at a piece created using the Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities technique described on page 59.
Mostly, that is: Mostly using the technique as it was described. Today, having apparently no sheets of blank masking material we used vinyl transfer tape.
And, lo and behold, it worked great, but using transfer tape results in a non-reusable mask. Once you've inked and stamped over it, there's nothing left to do but pull it off and throw it away.
Still, the technique can be accomplished using the tape and that's the important part of today's lesson!
Please don't forget to create your own inky masked art to show off at Linda's Studio L3 Compendium Challenge!
Also I know I've been babbling to anyone who will listen about how busy I've been, and how sorry I am that I haven't been commenting and checking in much this week (or, I think, last week).
I am so appreciative and grateful for those of you who've continued stopping in and saying hello despite my rude inattention!
Hopefully you kind people will be awfully thrilled with this good news: The clouds are clearing and by Monday I'll again hassle all of you with my exclamation point-filled comments and beginner questions!
Until then, Prost!
