Easy Masking Technique!

Ink Blending Masking stamping

HI friends! I'm back today with another masking technique that's basic yet very effective for your stamps! I'll be using From Our Entire Herd stamp, Paper Pouncers, and Grass Tufts die! 

I tend to use this masking technique quite a bit when I'm not felling inspired or am not sure how to use my stamps, and it works like a charm! I started with a piece of 5.5x4.25 white cardstock. Then I created a rectangle mask by placing painters' tape onto the card panel to frame the rectangle. The painter's tape will protect the areas where you don't want ink. You could also use a piece of 5.5x4.25 masking paper and die cut through the middle of it with a rectangle die!  

When my panel was masked, I inked blended through the middle with yellow ink. Then I used my Mini Paper Pouncer to create bokeh dots by inking the pouncer with shades of orange ink and stamping the pouncer over the yellow ink! You can see in the photo below the details in that background! Another way to use your pouncers! 

Then I removed the masking and stamped the giraffes from the From Our Entire Herd stamp in black ink, stamping it several times to get a crisp black image. I stamped the sentiment beneath it. Then I added some of the tufted grass in front of the giraffes, trimmed the card panel with my deckled paper trimmer along with a piece of black cardstock slightly larger, and adhered the 2 layers over a 5.5x4.25 white card base! 

I love this technique for silhouette stamps such as the giraffe one! Another option would be to create an ombre effect with your inks! Thanks for stopping by today!
