Welcome to our Totally Techniques Blog Hop where a few of my lovely friends from around the world and I share projects we have all made using the same technique.
This Months Technique is Masking Tape
Sorry about not being able to blog lately, I recently had an operation so creating and blogging has not been an option, YES in case you are wondering I had major withdrawaI symptoms lol …. BUT I have finally managed to get outside and have a bit of a play with some on my new and exciting products from the upcoming Occasions Catalogue. I must admit that this would have to be my favourite catalogue so far, I want it all lol. Make sure you contact Patrice if you would like a copy of your own, I am more than happy to pop one in the post for you. Anyway here is a bit of a sneak peak on a couple of products that will be available to purchase from the 5th January.
The biggest tip for this technique is make sure you use Low Tack Masking Tape otherwise you will rip your card. Creating a two-toned mottled effect on the background using masking tape was so easy to do, I will be adding a video at the bottom of this post soon if you want to see what I did, just taking a little longer than I would like to get over my operation. Using a dauber is a great way to add a second colour to the stamp (before stamping the image) as it creates a nice subtle effect, as you can see I have only done that to some of the flowers.
I finished the card off by using the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to splatter the background by tapping the side of the brush on my finger, hopefully that makes sense. Here’s what the inside of the card looks like.
Now it’s time to pop on over and see what the rest of the design team have come up with, let’s start by looking at the gorgeous card Amy Koenders has come up with this month.
