    Masking is trickier when you have something that’s not very substantial that you’re inking around. I like the technique though.

    Boy, this turned out LOVELY!!! I can imagine how easy it would be to sponge over masking paper as it won’t slide as easily as plastic or metal stencils. Great color combo and thanks for the tip on your vellum – sweet!!!

    This masking technique is so cool. To me masking meant that you stamped something on that ink and do paper and then cut it out and use it as a mask. It never ever occurred to me to use any of my dies to cut out a masK on the Inca Dinka do paper, and then, VOILA, you have a mask! I am going to tell you I bet I do this a zillion times in the future. I love it thank you

    I really learned a lot on this video. I am looking forward to trying this technique very soon.
    May I ask where you get the spray adhesive you used and also what was the name of the adhesive you used on the vellum to attach it to the card? I have a difficult time trying to find an adhesive that you don’t notice the glue underneath. Was that because you attached it to the white part of the card or is there a special adhesive that is less noticeable to use?

      Hi there! I used a tombow tape runner. The clear adhesive works great behind vellum. Thanks!

    No ink is better for blending than Distress Ink. The background mask worked great. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Super cute!! Could not guess that the white was really not another layer, but masked out space. 🙂
