Watercolour for the Non-Artistic Cardmaker: Masking and Stencilling


Hi Crafters,
welcome back to Watercolour for the Non-Artistic Cardmaker Stencilling and Masking. Below you can link up your creations until January 23rd where I will pick the winners of the prizes. Today we are going to look at stencilling and masking. Stencilling can be a great way to add subtle texture to a project while masking will help you create pretty backgrounds without disturbing your focal point.

  1. I just found your videos on YouTube and I have been enjoying them. I love the frog card! Cute and simple. Also love the watercolor background. Keep up the good work and I look forward to more videos!

  2. i didn't know archival ink was copic friendly, so thank you for that, i love the froggies and the yellow card is pretty amazing too, well done

    1. Hi Maaike,
      it isn't. I was just careful not to go too often over the ink. With watercolour and copic you need to make a choice, copic-friendly or watercolour-friendly

  3. Hi Justine, thanks for all the videos and pdfs. I'm not sure if it's me or the link, but the pdf for this lesson takes me to the colorbursts pdf. Help? Thanks!
