Two Methods of Stamp Image Masking for use with eBrush!

Sharing is what makes eBrushing fun! Especially if you can offer techniques that others can use or build upon! So today I have two different masking techniques that I use when ebrush images. I am using Pink & Main Stamps in my examples. I thank Michelle from Pink & Main for sponsoring our team this month!

First is the paper method. You will need cardstock, stamp, ink pad, and spray adhesive. You will also need the eBrush and your selection of markers. I used Spectrum Noir with my examples.

You will want to stamp your image on the paper you want to use for your project. You will also want to stamp on on paper to be cut apart to create your mask. I spray removable adhesive on all of my pieces before I cut them out.  Save all the pieces to mask your image.

Using the image mask you can make your background. Just cover and then spray your background.

Next cover your background and lets start on the image itself.

Remove and recover sections as you go along and before you know you will have your image completed.

I have so much fun using my ebrush! The silver speckles are from a silver sharpie!

The second method is something that I have shared before but is a good repeat. You can use rubber cement to create a great mask on most papers.
Using a small brush I apply rubber cement on the area's I want to remain unsprayed. I can recoat the color areas with rubber cement after they dry.


I sprayed my background and then removed the rubber cement with a rubber cement pickup.


Rubber cement doesn't raise the paper fibers. It really does give a nice blocking of color.


Here is my cleaned image. It is a blast to try different things to make my eBrush even more fun!


Thank you for joining me today!  Please share your tips and techniques below! Don't forget to join us on the eBrush by Craftwell facebook group!
