Sailing Home - Masking Tape Technique

Today my card features the masking tape technique. I really like this technique.  I used the Sailing Home stamp set on this card.  It's a quick and easy way to add colour to your card without stamping.




Instructions

  1. Cut Misty Moonlight cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base
  2. Cut Whisper White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
  3. Cut 4 strips of 1" masking tape or painters tape
  4. Lay 1 strip of tape onto Misty Moonlight ink pad and press down to pick up some ink
  5. Lay that strip onto Whisper White cardstock about 1/2" from top
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with Seaside Spray ink, Balmy Blue ink and Soft Suede ink.
  7. Stamp light house and sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  8. Cut Seaside Spray cardstock 4"x 5 1/4"
  9. Adhere Whisper White cardstock to Seaside Spray cardstock using Stampin' Seal.
  10. Wrap Misty Moonlight ribbon around bottom and tie a small knot on left hand side.
  11. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal
  12. Cut Whisper White cardstock 4" x 51/4"
  13. Stamp compass in bottom right using Misty Moonlight ink
  14. Adhere to the inside of the card using Stampin' Seal.
