Masking Technique Tutorial

By Marina Ignatova 


“Hello friends!

I really like to use the metal dies G45 in my projects. It is especially interesting to invent a new purpose for them. So, today, as part of #G45technique, I’m showing you how to use  metal dies as masks to create a mixed media background.

It’s pretty simple here: first I did die-cut elements. Then I fixed this elements on the background scrap paper. I applied tinting with distress Inc and distress Oxide.

I show everything in detail in the video tutorial. Enjoy your viewing!” ~Marina
