Help with Masking
by Emily Montenaro
"Masking is one of my favorite techniques. But sometimes, if I've trimmed my mask too close to the image outline, I'm left with an empty space between my two images. For example - here, I masked the birdbath and then stamped the oval. Depending on the ink I'm using, I've found that this can easily be fixed with a brush! Here you can see that I've already used an empty water brush to lightly blend in a few dots of green ink to tough up the empty space on the right side of the birdbath!
