Something cool

I had a meeting today with a fellow paper crafter(and fellow San Diego County resident)Terri Sproul. She shared a product new to me called the masquePen and it's very cool! The idea is this. in lieu of cutting out a paper mask, you just use the masquePen to paint one on. Anybody who likes to do masking for card making or collages will welcome this tool. I did a quickie experiment with it this afternoon. In the picture of the egg, every place that is light green was masked using the masquePen. The darker areas were inked right from the pad over the whole egg. The fun part is peeling the mask away after you've finishing coloring. You get a really clean delineation between the masked areas and the inked ones. Check it out here:

Didn't Mike do a wonderful job using the MasquePen. And it was his first time using. Great job Mike - I enjoyed our meeting yesterday.
