Clean & EASY Masking + Ink Blending (WOW! EP & Picket Fence Blog Hop)

Hi, friends! Today I’m part of the WOW! Embossing Powder and Picket Fence Studios Collaboration Blog Hop. No blog hop would be complete without a giveaway, so keep on reading for more information! 😄

Make sure to watch the video below for tips and tricks on CLEAN & EASY masking and ink blending.

First, I stamped and colored the I Love Your Face Stamp from Picket Fence. Straight after coloring it, I used Clear Gloss WOW Embossing Powder over it to add gloss. Make sure to do this after coloring with alcohol markers. Otherwise you will damage the tips of your markers!

I did some masking and ink blending with Distress Oxide Ink Pads. I used Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac. These are such pretty shades!

Finally, I finished off my card with a Crafter’s Companion Sparkle Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze.


You could win 6 WOW! Embossing Powders of your choice along with a carry case. On top of that, Picket Fence is giving away a $50 gift certificate to their store. To enter the giveaway, you have to leave a comment on each blog post for a chance to win. The giveaway is open internationally. Winners will be announced the week of the 5th of August on both the WOW! Embossing Powder and Picket Fence Studio Blog. Good luck! 🍀

Hop, hop, hop!
