Masking Tape Card

Hello Everybody!

Hope all is well in Blogland!  I am waiting for my sister to arrive and thought I would make a quick post.  I have been working on this technique and then this morning I was able to put the card together and take a few pictures.  I am submitting this card to the Do More With Less: Guest Miae Rowe challenge.  Go check it out.  Miae does a great job explaining the Masking Tape technique and it's easy and fun to do!

Here's my card.  The letters are glittery letters but I don't remember the brand.  The flowers and stems are all apart of the Masking Tape Technique.


Here is my first piece of cardstock with masking tape on it that I sprayed.  You need gesso to put on the tape.  I didn't have any but I have been seeing people use it all over the place.  So when I saw this technique I decided the time is now!  I am so happy I bought it because I've used it on a few different projects.  I googled other uses for it.


Here is a close up of the flowers.  The orange color is Tattered Angels, red from Smooch, and the green is from October Afternoon.

Here's my card.  Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...who knew a little masking tape could be so much fun? :)

I've been reading on my ipod lately, so I can't comment, but this one is really neat! Hope you and Magnus are having a great summer.
