This past Monday was our Stamping Technique Class, the technique was:
Masking Tape Background
what a fun technique this was! The cards just about fell into place and I was so happy with the results, I hope that you will be too!
1. Use masking tape to transfer ink for a unique background. Tear off a strip of masking tape. Ink up your strip with ink.
2. Place tape over white cardstock. Remove tape and repeat depending how many strips you want.
3. Let Dry. Use your background for your project.
