Deckled Edge Masking Technique

Ink Blending Masking stamping

Hi friends! Today I want to share another masking technique that creates a deckled edge! Deckled Edges are all the rage now! I'll be using the Scene Building: Long Time No See, Giraffe stamp set.

I love to create a deckled edge to my masking because it steps it up from the basic masking! To achieve this look, I took 2 pieces of masking tape and tore one side of it down to create a jagged edge. Then I placed each piece of tape onto the top and bottom parts of a white card panel, jagged side facing towards the center of the panel. As an option, you could create a rectangle by doing this technique with 4 pieces of masking tape! Or you could die cut through the center of a piece of masking paper using a deckled edge die, if you have one!

Once my die was in place, I ink blended through the middle area with orange, lavender, and blue inks. Before I removed the ink, I stamped the image from Long Time No See Giraffe stamp.

When I removed the masking, I had this cool jagged edging on my card panel! Then I added a sentiment above and below the trees. I trimmed the top and bottom of the white card panel and placed it over a black 5.5x4.25 card base.

I love how unique and interesting the deckled edges look, and the background really complimented these silhouette stamps! Thanks for stopping by!
