This fun technique has been making the rounds on the internet lately so of course, I had to try it out!
I don't know if it has an "official" name, but I call it Inking with Masking Tape.
Pretty self-explanatory, eh?
Ok, so here's my card:
To create the background, I just used three strips of masking tape - one for each color - and rubbed them sticky side down on the surface of an ink pad to pick up the color, one at a time.
Then I just rubbed the inked tape onto the cardstock piece to transfer the color - easy peasy, really.
My color combo here is Pink Pirouette, Rose Red and Pear Pizazz with Smoky Slate and Whisper White as the neutrals. I stamped my greeting from the Yippee-Skippee stamp set in Black Staz-On ink and added a Large Rhinestone for an accent.
Love the clean and simple look of this card and it's a good one to switch out the colors and/or greeting for ANY type of card you may need.
Give this technique a try and tell me how you like it, ok?
