Masking Tape Christmas Card


Today I have another Christmas card for you that uses a technique I'd never tried before.

It's pretty easy to create this lovely background for your cards.  All I did was tear off some masking tape, apply it to my inkpad and then use the tape to transfer the ink to the cardstock.

Low tack tape like masking tape, or painter's tape, is essential for this technique so that the tape easily lifts off the inkpad and cardstock without tearing.

Masking tape gives a rather textured look while painter's tape gives a smoother look.  It was fun having a play and trying some new things!

Bye for now,
