I love using the Tim Holtz masks! They make such a beautiful page, and are just SO interesting and pleasing. For me, they add one more dimension, and the Tinkering Ink that I use is MUCH PRETTIER in person than in my gallery. They have a sheen that (unfortunately) doesn't come across on the screen.
I just bought one, a flourish, and I plan to use glimmer mist with it. I just heard from a friend that she was informed from a vendor at Scrapfest that you should put your page on newspaper and start spraying the mist on the newspaper first. This will help to eliminate the drips that sometimes occur with glimmer mist.
They're good for more than one time....in fact, I have used the Tinkering Ink masks and they don't even have any adhesive on the back. So, I think that if the T. Holtz masks become less sticky, it wouldn't be much of an issue.
ok well mine is a sticker, so it is like a one time thing is that right?
All you do is lay the mask over the area where you want the design, and spray the Glimmer Mist over the mask. Pull the mask away and that's pretty much it. You'll have the original paper color where the mask was, and the Glimmer Mist over the area not covered by the mask. This can make some interesting combinations. My paper usually gets warped in this process, but it can be ironed between two sheets of newsprint paper (that is not printed on).
