Painters Tape Masking

By | April 28, 2017

Today, I have a fun technique to share with you.  It involves creating a mask with painters tape!

I heard about this idea from a fellow demonstrator and thought it was so clever!  I had my daughter buy me the widest painters tape available at Home Depot.  (She hangs out there a lot, because that’s where her boyfriend works!  Ha!!!)  Initially, I thought I would need to select a die cut that would fit within the width.  Of course, when the artistic side of me kicked in and I started thinking of card ideas, that went out the window.  So I decided to try placing two strips of tape on my Big Shot glass side by side and slightly overlapping.  It worked!  I ran the die cut through the machine, and voila, a perfect stencil that totally stays put.

I had to be a little careful when I picked up this particular stencil, just because there were so many little intricate pieces.  But I have to say, this is a technique I would try again.

Have a great weekend!!!
