Default Newb liquid masking question

Hey fellas, getting ready to start painting some bodies and after spring some practice panels, I'm having trouble with a small amount of overspray obscuring my outlining for the rest of the graphic.

When drawing on intricate, multi-level designs on the outside, how do you keep the overspray from covering the flame tips? Are you cutting the entire graphic out before beginning, or do I just need to be more careful when spraying?

For example, on this body, when beginning with the dark blue base, how should I spray that on without covering the flame licks that have to be cut out in the next step?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Can you show us a photo of your work, of where you're having the trouble? Might help us better understand.
