Once the paint was dry, the Frisket was removed with a gum eraser and index finger. On the top card, the Frisket peeled off so-so. I had to reink with a pen a few areas where the ink came off with the mask.
I am entering this card in the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge for May. The theme is flowers and the challenge is open until the 24th, so I hope you can link up and light up the gallery with your OLC!
However. On the second card, the Frisket really peeled away the image almost completely (same paper and same ink) and even beyond the image and into the colored background. Crudballs. I salvaged the card by stamping the image again on scratch paper, fussy-cutting it, and gluing it over the top of the crudded-up image. I also rewashed the areas of color that were peeled away. It was just too pretty not to salvage as best I could.
I'm pretty sure that my problem with the Frisket was because I was using letter press cardstock. It takes color well, but I think it is just too soft to be a good candidate for hippo hooves. Just FYI. I'll be using the mask again on different paper coz it's cool and I'll show you how it turns out when I do.
