Inspire Create Share Blog Hop: Technique Showcase


Hi friends!! Welcome to the Inspire Create Share August Blog Hop. This month we are spotlighting techniques. I have no idea what my team mates selected for their techniques and I cannot wait to hop through and see all the samples. I hope to see some past ones making a come back and some new (to me) ones too! 

 I love the Sea Turtle Stamp Set. I have used so many different background techniques, bubble wrap, water color, etc. and now the Masking Tape technique. It is one I haven't done in years, and thought it would be fun to show it again.

So, without further ado, here are the steps: 

1. Press the masking tape (or painters tape) into the ink pad: 

2. Press the tape onto the card: 

3. and Voila! Then repeat with whatever colors you want, until you have the look you want. 

Here is my completed card using this technique: 

The colors I used are, starting from bottom up: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, Boho Blue, & Balmy Blue.

I hope you try and enjoy this technique! I would love to see what you do with it! 

Janey is up next, and using the new online exclusive Trucking Along bundle. I am curious what technique she is using. Hop on over with me to see.

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!
