Good morning friends. Just a quick post today. Last fall there was a technique going around in the stamping world where you use masking tape and your ink pads to make a background for your card, and I finally got around to trying it. I think I still need a little practice, but after trimming down the parts I didn't like and adding my focal image, I think it turned out alright. Take a look:
I used SU!'s Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, & Smokey Slate inks with the masking tape and then stamped the image from Serene Silhouettes in black ink. I added a paper doily to the side of the image before layering it to a piece of black cs, tying a piece of pink and white twine around it, and then mounting to a pink card base. My sentiment is from PTI's Boutique Borders: Sympathy. Considering I thought this was going to the scrap bin in the beginning, I think it turned out pretty well after a little doctoring up! :0)
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you all have a wonderful Monday.
