Hello. Today I have a Quick Tip Video (only 2 minutes!) showing my favorite way to quickly color lots of critter images… with masking!

I am going to do Quick Tip Videos every few weeks… and I am hoping you like them! These videos will be only a couple of minutes long and will share a technique or tip that I think is fun. Today I show how to use masking to quickly color cute critters on lots of cards.

I used the new My Favorite Things Polar Bears Stamp Set and Sweet Sloths Stamp Set. Aren’t they cute? I colored the polar bear quickly with a mask and Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. I colored the sloth in the same way but added some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Cute, huh? This technique is great for mass-producing one-layer cards.


Would love to hear if you like this Quick Tip format. It won’t replace other videos, but rather add to them. Thanks!
