Masking with Ribbon

Masking is all the rage right now especially with mists. This video is all about how to use your inks and a sponge to do some masking with your ribbon. And the cool thing is you can reuse the ribbon, too!  By using inks and a sponge you can control how much product is going on to your mask. So in case you are using a color that won’t match your next project, you won’t waste any of your ribbon. A great way to cut costs and make product go further.

    I think a doily would work as a great mask too.  Just in case you don't have webbed ribbon.

    What a simple, GREAT idea!  Love it—looks so cool!  And I like that I can use the mast over and over by using inks instead of mists!
