A New Technique

April 26, 2012

Today I am sharing a fun technique that I tried after I saw it on Splitcoast Stampers.  It’s called Magical Masking.  This technique is very simple.  You take a strip of masking tape and put the sticky side down on your ink pad and then when it is nice an inky you stick it down onto Glossy card stock.  It has to be glossy and then the fun part, you take the edge and pull really quickly, like you are removing an eyebrow wax or something similar.   The ink stays on the glossy card stock and you can reuse the masking tape or try another colour.

I used Baja Breeze, Marina Mist and Bashful Blue ink to add the colour to my Glossy card stock and then I stamped the image and greeting from the Just Believe stamp set using Early Expresso ink.  I think it is a fantastic technique and so easy to do, although you do get your fingers a little inky.

What do you think, isn’t it gorgeous?


I just wanted to share with you a photo of my grandsons with their Great Grandfather.  Yesterday both boys marched with my Dad in the Kallangur Anzac Day Parade.

Ethan (on the left) was wearing the medals that belonged to his Great Great Grandfather and Noah (on the right)  was wearing minatures of  the medals that belonged to his Great Great Uncle.  I was very proud as I watched them March.  Lest We Forget.

Bye for now, Kris.

      I was very proud of my Dad and my grandsons. I’m glad you got to wear your medals too. Anzac Day nearly always makes me cry.
