Dynamic Duos #70!

TGIS! I'm always so happy to see Saturday arrive at my house and one of the reasons is because it's time to play at Dynamic Duos, yay! We have our "Subtly Yours" week this week and these are the subtle colors we used:
I decided to use a background technique for my card this week. Inking up masking tape or painters tape has been all the rage and I've seen many a background using this technique:

 
All you do is rip off a piece of masking or painter's tape, press the sticky part onto your ink pad to ink it up and then press in place on your cardstock. How neat is that? And what a wonderful effect don't you think?
 
I added a flowered stamp image from the "Best of Flowers" stamp set and the sentiment is from "Blooming with Kindness". Both are inked using "Baked Brown Sugar Ink". What a nice effect just a few "Rhinestone Jewels" add to my card also. 

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: So Saffron, Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White
  • Inks: So Saffron, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Honeycomb Embossing Folder
  • Accessories: 5/8" Crochet Trim, Rhinestone Jewels
  • Stamps: Best of Flowers, Blooming with Kindness
  • Misc: Masking or Painter's Tape

  5. This is SO awesome, Debbie - I just love that technique. I absolutely have to remember to try it very soon. I love how yo've used the stamp set too... I always find it too small and it has deterred me from using it altogether! You've shown me that I need to smarted up ;)

    1. I agree Tara with the size of the stamp. I had to purchase this set as I regretted selling the larger sized image!
