I follow probably hundreds of crafting blogs and quite a few YouTube channels and the latest item I’ve seen for coloring using masks is these new brushes. I picked up a makeup brush from my local Walmart to see what it could do.
This is the brush I picked up:
I used Blackberry Bliss ink, the brick mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks, and some pieces of Thick Whisper White Cardstock I had laying around.
First I tried the Stamping Sponges, they are good but you can see somewhat splotchy. I would need to spend more time using them to get a more even coverage.
Next I used the Sponge Daubers, very deep color and a lot of pouncing to get even coverage. I got tired of pouncing.
Last is the makeup brush. I purposely did an ombre because I could. I like how crisp this turned out. I think I need to recommend to Stampin’ Up! to start carrying something like this for color blending.
I even made a card with the makeup brush piece.
