Video: Ink Masking + Faux Snow


I believe that the most versatile stamping technique is masking. Thankfully there are many ways to mask… and in today’s video, I show a couple, including a new product that I think is fantastic.

There are many ways to do masking. (In fact, you can see several in action in THIS video.) However, I recently found what I feel is the best liquid masking product out there – the Molotow Masking Liquid Marker. I used this pen to mask a cute reindeer from the Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together stamp set before addingย Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a snowy stamped background. When this was complete, I just rubbed off the masking fluid with my finger. Perfection!

I also usedย Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper to mask the ground before inking and stamping. After coloring the reindeer with Copic Markers (E30, E33, E35 and R20), I added a bit of red ink for his glowing red-gem nose.

For dimension, I added snow with a Snow Marker. This product puffs up when heated with a heat gun. It’s like magic! I finished the card with a red-glitter embossed “shine bright” sentiment and a notecard with the edges covered with the same.

Note: The Molotow Liquid Masking Pen is difficult to get in stock. Simon Says Stamp has a few right now (they got as many as the manufacturer could send!) and have even more on the way. So stay tuned – they should be in this week. I know Heidi was working very hard to get them in! (I actually shot this video over a week ago but held off on sharing until she could get more.)
