I finally was able to get some Heidi swapp masks but my first try was a fail. Any tips on using them

How was it a fail? What did you use for your color? Spray, mist, ink, paint?

What happened when you tried masking that made it a fail?

I just lay the mask down on the cardstock/paper and put it all in a cardboard box. I mist from directly above, as much as possible, and start from fairly high up and move down closer if I want more colour.

I know some scrappers use a repositionable spray adhesive on the back of their masks to lightly adhere it to the paper before misting.

I don't mind if my misted image isn't perfect or exact, so I just go with the no-adhesive lazy method.

I tried misting it but it covered the whole design from under as well, then I tried inking just with a sponge but it didn't seem to look right with that either lol maybe I just need a lot more practice

Maybe there was too much mist used. Try holding the bottle farther away from the mask itself, and spray lightly. What kind of mist did you use? There are some brands that are runnier than others.

I share my approach on a Scrap Your Stash video, if you want to check it out.

Thanks! I will watch again as I'm sure I've seen it once, I watch them all lol I was using a mr. Huey that came in a kit and it was a mini bottle and it did seem runnier than others now that I think about it
