Ready for masking techniques part 2?! If you watched last week you know that masking techniques are fun and you can get super creative! Wait until you see this next lovely card!
In today’s video I show you how I masked the daffodil so that you can blend the background around it. I also created a circle mask that I used as a way of protecting the area on my card front from ink while I was blending the background.
