Tips and Tricks
- Practice on Scrap Paper: If you’re new to masking techniques or trying a new design, it’s always a good idea to practice on scrap paper first. This allows you to refine your technique, test color combinations, and ensure you’re satisfied with the results before applying it to your actual cards.
- Secure the Masking Magic: To ensure your Masking Magic stays in place while stamping and blending, gently press it down to adhere it firmly to the cardstock. This will prevent any ink or blending from bleeding underneath the mask, resulting in clean and defined images.
- Remove Masking Magic Carefully: When removing the Masking Magic after stamping or blending, do it slowly and gently to avoid any damage to the cardstock or the masked areas. Use your fingertips or tweezers to lift the mask from the edges, peeling it away gradually.
- Add Embellishments: Once you’ve completed your masked designs, consider adding embellishments to enhance the overall look of your cards. Embossing powders, sequins, ribbons, or even simple hand-drawn details can elevate your creations and make them truly special.
- Have Fun and Embrace Imperfections: Remember, crafting is all about expressing your creativity and enjoying the process. Embrace any imperfections or happy accidents that may occur along the way—they often add character and uniqueness to your handmade cards.
With these tips and tricks in mind, you’re well-equipped to embark on your masking journey using Masking Magic. Remember to stay patient, practice, and let your imagination guide you. The possibilities are endless, and each card you create will be a reflection of your artistic flair. Enjoy the journey and happy crafting!
