Coloring, My Favorite Things Stamps

Masked Blended Background – Halloween Edition

Today it is all about creating a masked blended background with distress inks and oxide inks, using dies and stamps with masking paper to mask out the area. The card is finished off with stamps by My Favorite Things colored in the no-line coloring technique with copic markers.

For the card base I went with a square base measuring 4 1/4″ by 4 1/4″. The first part of the mask was cut with a stitched mod square die out of a 4 1/4 strip of masking paper, so that the mask can cover the card base and a little over to the backside as it will not be folded when I blend.

I also stamped a couple of the clouds and a moon from the Witch Way Is The Candy stamp set onto another piece of masking paper and then cut them out with my scissors. These I placed towards the upper left corner in a little arrangement of three.

I did the blending first with the distress inks in the colors Festive Berries and Wilted Violet, but as I was working on Neenah card stock and I went in with a little to heavy hand I just couldn’t get a good blend, so I finally decided to just take out my oxide inks in the same colors and then just blend on top. The oxide inks are a little bit easier to blend and they are also more opaque so it hid a little bit of the original blending. I finished it off with some water droplets flicked with my fingers and then padded off with a paper towel, to add a little bit of texture.

I then finished off the outside with some fussy cutted images, that I had colored in the no-line coloring technique, fastened with some foam tape. And a stamped sentiment. For the inside I stamped a sentiment, used my left over images and then I added splatters as I accidentally gotten some ink on the inside while blending and though it would hide it a bit.
