February Basic Training-Inking with Painters Tape

Happy Valentines Day!
Last week for Drill #49 the team shared some Valentines.  Today I would like to show you how I created the background on my card.

I started by choosing 3 Distress Ink colors and grabbed some painters tape.
I used watercolor paper for this technique cut to size before I started inking.

I put my paper on a paper towel in case I over inked.  Tear a piece of tape a bit longer than you paper and drag across you stamp pad.  I went back and pushed it down with my fingers also.

Tape across your paper and push down to spread the ink.  Repeat as many times as you would like.  I chose 3 colors so I have three stripes.

Gently peel back the tape...viola!
Once it dried I stamped my Valentine image of LOVE from Viva Las VegaStamps with archival ink.  I didn't apply even pressure on the stamp because I wanted a vintage look.

May Arts tulle is wrapped around the sentiment.

And the finished product.

As always we really appreciate your visit and look forward to having you back again soon!!
