Jennifer McGuire has been a fantastic resource for all things card making, whether it's a new technique, new product, or new way to look at something you're already doing. She is also a major organizational champ, and a Sweetie, too, so DEFINITELY check her out, if you don't already do so on a regular basis.
She did a terrific tutorial about doing masked stripes, which I really enjoyed, and I knew I had to dive into this one for myself.
To start with, I made this--
I tried to keep the rest of this card to a minimum, so the background could really shine.
I also did a second panel, but I had some trouble getting the tape to adhere to the wet ink where I was trying to do layering, so I had some boo boos I had to cut off.
I ended up with these--
Note that I DID manage to achieve rainbow order here!
This was so fun to do, and other than my challenge of getting the tape to cooperate, these were pretty idiot proof (ME, being the idiot in question). Oh the key is to use enough tape that you can tape to your surface, as well as your paper panel. Once I grasped that one, it was smooth sailing!
So, thanks to Jennifer for the idea. I'll be returning to this technique, I think!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
