The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

Hello everyone, this is my first post ever on Inkspace forum.
I have been trying to mask a standup bag image and mask it to the a label which I created. But when I do the masking, the colours of the label becomes lighter than what they actually are.

Is there any reason why this might be happening?

I think what you want to use is Object/Clip.  Clip and mask seem similar except that mask lightens the remaining image and the bounding box remains the same, and clip doesn't fade the image and shrinks the bounding box to the clipped area.  I've always used clip and never mask so I'm not familiar with the ins and outs of mask.
