IndigoBlu Challenge Blog - #21 Magical Masking

Hi folks, I'm here with some inspiration for the IndigoBlu Challenge #21. The theme for this month, 'Magical Masking' was chosen by the lovely Nikki.

You can join in the challenge here for your chance to win some fabulous IndigoBlu prizes!!!

Here is what I created...

I'd never heard of this technique before, obviously you hear of different masking techniques but what's so magical about it???
For this one, I had to do a bit of research...

I chose to work with the IndigoBlu Poppy Meadows A5 stamp set for this one and chose three different shades of Versafine red ink.
I cut three lengths of masking tape and rubbed each one with the three different inks on the sticky side of the tape.
I then stuck the pieces of masking tape on to IndigoBlu Perfect stamping card and peeled them off, leaving a lovely subtle inked line.

I then stamped the poppies over the top of the red with black versafine and added the sentiment in the corner. 

I came to the conclusion that I love this technique to create a quick wash of colour for a background.

All the products I have used to create this are available on the IndigoBlu Website
