There are several different ways to do masking. The first one shown today is a very simple process using a low-tack tape, such as the blue painters tape, ink pads, and Stamping Sponges (#101610). You can use this technique to make backgrounds (such as a plaid design). Ink colors are Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, and Pacific Point. [Sorry about the glare, haven’t figured out how to photograph glossy paper without a glare!]
This must be done on glossy cardstock (#102599) otherwise, if done on regular white cardstock, the painters tape will sometimes remove the paper (as shown below). You can, however, buy specialty tape that is specifically made for masking.
Finally, the plaid pattern is mounted to a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and the sentiment from the Field Flowers stamp set (#122762) is mounted on Melon Mambo and Pacific Point cardstock. The flowers on the scalloped circle are also from Field Flowers. The Scalloped Circle Punch (#118874) was used to punch out the center image.
All supplies (except tape) can be ordered from my Online Store. Next week will be a continuation of masking – stay tuned!
Happy stampin’ ! -Sandra-
