We had a super fun technique challenge at our November demonstrator gathering, and I wanted to share some of the cute cards people came up with using the Painter's Tape Technique.
Isn't that a cool look? So random! If you haven't tried this technique yet, literally all you need is an ink pad and some kind of tape--masking tape or painters tape works the best, but you can use any kind, including washi tape! Just press the sticky side of a strip of tape into the ink pad (doesn't hurt it, never fear) and then press it ink-side down onto your paper.
There was also a plaid one that was just stunning, but I did not get a photo of it, I guess. Maybe Lori will link to it here in the comments? : )
This technique lends itself to all kinds of creativity. Joann masked off the center of her card using a Festive Flurry Framelits die cut, then radiated her tape strips out from the center. It took a while, but the finished effect is gorgeous!
So if you haven't tried this technique yet--go get some painter's tape and give it a go! There's a reason it's been all over the internet lately--it's super fun!
