Masking Techniques | The Video Guide

I love masking techniques because they are so simple to use but give me some variety in my paper crafting. The video tutorial shows you all you need to know to create the masking technique and the reverse masking technique. Both of these can be done in minutes!

This video tutorial teaches you masking techniques to use on paper craft projects.

This masking technique gives the illusion that the strawberries are stacked behind or overlapping each other.

The masking technique is extra simple when you use punches and dies that match your stamp. Don’t have a punch or die? Grab your scissors and create a simple mask. Just stamp your image on copy paper and fussy cut it out. Boom! You have a mask.

This is a reverse masking technique that you use dies or craft punches to create.

Reverse masking is the opposite of masking because you make the outside area the mask and only stamp on the inside. Layering dies (Circles, Squares, Ovals, anything will work). Coloring in the background color with a blending brush helps bring out the mask even more!
