Trendy Tuedays - Masking (Petaloo & QQ Day 2)


Masking Technique:
Today I'll be showing you the technique of masking. Then I'll be finishing off each project with gorgeous Petaloo flowers. Masking is the opposite of stenciling. The mask I'll be using is made form a flexible reusable plastic film with a repositionable adhesive on the back so that the image will stay in place as you apply paint, or other medium. With this project I simply used QQ powder puff ink. It is one of my favorite techniques in altering papers. It’s easy to do and it adds a lot of dimension to your paper. Heidi Swapp Masks are one of my favorites to use but you can also create your own masks - if you look around you and use your imagination, you will find things everywhere that can be used as a mask!


Heidi Swapp Masks,
QQ Powder Puff Chalk Ink
QQ Je’taime 400 Paper
QQ French Quarter 500 Paper
Petaloo Flowers
Tim Holz Stamp

How to use the mask:
Place the mask down onto your work surface and ink the top of your paper.
(I used disposable make up foam applicator, or you can use Tim Holtz felt applicator)

Peel back the mask to reveal the uninked area.
Assemble the card:
Cut cardstock to use as the base of the card.
Trim altered (masks) patterned cardstock slightly smaller for border.
Stamp sentiment
Add embellishment for texture (I used Petaloo flowers)
