Happy Monday Friends! Today we have a special post with Jo Herbert. She is sharing the masking fluid technique that she showcased a few week’s ago with our Saturday Designer Feature that unfortunately I did not have the proper link for it. So here is Jo with her fantastic masking fluid tutorial!
“Hi lovely crafting peeps and welcome to today’s blog post. Today I will be using some masking fluid that I found at my local art and craft store.
I first stamped the floral image from the “Tulip Bouquet ” stampset with Jet Black Staz On ink on a heavy duty 300GSM smooth cardstock.
I then used an old brush and painted a thin layer with Masking Fluid over the image conscious of staying within the stamped image. Make sure you rinse the brush out straight away as it dries rather quickly. I had a small bowl and paper towel on hand for easy to reach access.
Make sure that the masking fluid is dried before applying any ink or colour over the top. I chose 3 Distress Ink colours to use for the base to apply a wash colour over the image. To spread the ink over I used a big flat brush. I made sure I first brushed the water colour cardstock with water so the distress inks can spread easily over the card stock without streaking. I used my craft mat to pick up the distress inks from.
