Hi all! I never used to like masking. I never *did* masking, unless it was really simple, like leaves behind a flower. But now that I have the MISTI, I’ve found that masking can actually be really easy and leads to a very satisfying project. Like this:
What looks like a single stamp is actually made up using 4 stamps. And it was really easy to do! The hardest part is fussy cutting out the masks, and there are liquid masking fluids that you can use and not even have to cut masks, so it couldn’t be simpler!
I did all my masking and stamping on my MISTI with Memento ink. Then I colored the image with Spectrum Noir pencils and put it back in my MISTI to overstamp with Versafine ink. Finally I stamped the sentiment on the circle base using my MISTI and the hexagon template (you can see more about that HERE).
Here’s my video about how the MISTI makes masking easy:
And here’s THE LINK in case you can’t see the video above.
This is for the following challenges:

I hope you like this and TFL!
