Reverse Masking Technique Page

I have two more technique pages I want to add to the book before I offer it as blog candy in celebration of my blog reaching 500,000 hits!!! This is a very fun technique. Reverse Masking is very simple to do and adds a very fun look to your projects.

Ink up your larger stamp and stamp the image on a piece of card stock. You will also want to stamp the image onto copier paper. Cut away the image on the copier paper. Make sure the background stays nice and neat. You are not keeping the image, you are keeping the background which is now your mask.

Now lay our mask over the image. The image you stamp should appear in the center of your mask.

Now ink up your print stamp with a contrasting color if ink. Stamp the prints all over the larger image. Remove the mask and see how fun the image now looks!

I find that darker prints on lighter backgrounds has a much better look to it. But for me that is a personal preference.

Come back on Monday for the blog candy post! To see the other technique pages that will be included with this one click here..
