There are tons of techniques to do when it comes to crafting/stamping, but I'm a big fan of quick and easy. This technique has the added bonus of being goof proof and I really need it..lol. Once you try the masking tape technique you will be "stuck" on it!
It's soo easy:
- Tear off a piece of masking tape or painters tape.
- Gently lay the tape across your ink pad and use your bone folder (or finger) to push the tape into the ink.
- Lift tape off of the ink pad and firmly press tape onto your cardstock, use bone folder (or finger) to push inked tape onto your cardstock.
VIOLA! Beautiful color and texture added onto your background!
Check out this card I made at a card class, the blue and brown area where the seagull area is where we did the masking tape technique. Cool Huh?
