Video: Lydia’s Crafty Corner – Easy Masking Using Mask Stencils

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone and happy Friday! It's Lydia here. Today I'll be sharing how quick and easy masking with our Mask Stencils can be.

For the card with the single flower in the vase, I started by stamping a flower image from Wallpaper Art Stamp Set using Permanent Black Ink. I then masked this off using the coordinating Wallpaper Art Mask Stencil. I could then stamp the large leaf image over this and as the flower is masked off, the leaves then look as though they are behind it. Then I added the coordinating mask over the leaves. Next, I stamped the bowl vase image from Versatile Vases Stamp Set into place. Once this was done I could then remove the masks to reveal my perfectly masked images.

I then used the stencil part of Wallpaper Art Mask Stencil Set around the flower image. I colored this using finger daubers and Autumn Blaze Ink for the flower canter and Coral Berry Ink for the petals. When the flower was colored I added the mask over it again. I colored the leaves in the same way, inking using Grass Field Ink. Again, I added the mask over this before using the Versatile Vases Mask Stencil around the stamped vase image and inked this using Sea Glass Ink.

I finished this card off simply by matting my stamped panel onto a piece of patterned paper from Essentials Black & White 6×6 Paper Pack and a sentiment from Thank You Builder Stamp Set.

I created the second card using the same technique as the first card. It's amazing that you can get totally different looks using the same techniques and products!

To see how these two cards came together please watch the video below or over on our YouTube Channel:

Thanks so much for stopping by! And I'll see you again real soon!

I just left a mega comment on the video, and I’ll repeat myself here… YAY for masking stencils! I can’t believe I have not put two & two together on what these actually are. I’ve seen them but glossed over them; well THAT was very bad on my part – lol! An Altenew Masking Stencils Collection is definitely in my future!!
