Masking Tape Background Technique

Card made with the Masking Tape Technique and the Too Kind Stamp SetHere is an interesting Background Technique - use Masking Tape to transfer the ink, instead of using a stamp. 

The technique is super quick and easy. Just lay regular masking tape directly onto your ink pad - sticky side down.  Then lay the inky tape onto your project. 

**The wetness of the ink  prevents the masking tape
    from sticking to the paper.
**You can really create some interesting
    background patterns this way - especially given
    the fact that Masking Tape is available in such
    a wide variety of sizes.

Do you recognize this "tree" stamp? Probably not, since its NOT a tree!  This is the stem and flower (turned upside down) from the Too Kind Stamp set.  Don't you love finding a new way to use something you already have!

Colors on this project:  Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay, Marina Mist
Accessories: Linen Thread, Basic Rhinestones
Stamp Set: Too Kind
