Use washi tape? *1: Give a clean edge to your stamped images but creating a simple washi tape mask. Lay the edges of the washi tape against the edges of a card and stamp inside the mask as desired. *2: Mix it up by alternating washi tape, cardstock and Shimmer Trim for a unique background. #weheartwashi #creativetechniques #washiwonder #ctmh #ctmhcreate #washitape
Washi wonder, part 2! 3. Apply washi tape in increments on cardstock. Use a sponge, dauber or spray pen to apply color to the negative space. Gently peel up washi tape, &, voila! A unique background pattern! 4. Washi tape too wide for your project? Simply cut or tear washi tape to smaller widths. How else do you use your washi tape?
Get creative with inking! CTMH shows you how 1. Swipe Stamping-drag your stamp diagonally across the ink pad, stamp. 2. Spritz Stamping-ink stamp, spray lightly with spritz, stamp. 3. Watercolour Blending-put two colours of ink next to each other on the All-Purpose Mat, spritz, put stamp into ink, stamp. 4. Ghost Stamping-stamp image using White Daisy ink on a dark cardstock. Stamp image again using a colour, slightly offsetting the image to create a shadow. www.maz.ctmh.com.au
