Masked & Inked Tags

Today I had a play with some Gorgeous Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings paper, K and Co Grand Adhesions (currently 25% off!) and a Crafters Workshop mask designed by Julie Fei Fan Balzer - Punchinella. Mix in some Tim Holtz stamps, distress inks et voila!

On the tag above I swiped a little gesso, through the mask, heat dried it then went over with a little Crushed Olive distress ink to add a little texture.

A more subtle look with Bundled Sage

This last one with Vintage Photo.

Don't stop at gesso and distress inks, masks work great with chalk inks, paints, texture pastes, sprays. The list is endless!

Thanks for dropping by, have a great weekend :)


  1. Great tags Kate! I need to have a go using gesso like that, and I so need the punchinella mask - will have to wait til funds allow tho!

  2. The tags are beautiful and I love the shading techniques you have used.
