I prefer to call these Stencils, I think that’s what they always used to be called. Whatever you prefer to call them though, these are an amazing and versatile tool for making all sorts of papercraft projects.
My card uses these masks, as well as the technique of masking to create a card that looks like it has three panels on the front, but is, in fact, just one piece of Basic White cardstock.
I have masked off the three sections first, and sponged ink through the Decorative Mask with Fresh Freesia, Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight inks using Blending Brushes.
I have then inked the image from the Quiet Meadow Stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, and masked off the outside of the three panels before stamping.
The images have been very lightly coloured using Stampin’ Blends, as have the Rhinestone Jewels.
I am having a lot of fun with these Decorative Masks, and I am also in the process of creating a Tutorial / Class featuring them, so watch this space for that.
