Painter's Tape Tutorial with GI

Happy Monday Crafty Friends!

It is my turn to share a tutorial with you on the Great Impressions Stamp Blog!

I decided to go with:
Painter's Tape Technique

I enjoy using this technique!

Start by gathering your supplies:
Painter's Tape
Card Base Layer (Mine is 5 1/4" x 4")
Stamp (I am using Seeded Dandelions (G298))

Rip off a few pieces of painter's tape to the length you would like.
For my card today, each piece was around the same size.

Next place the painter's tape on the ink pad you are going to use first, sticky side on ink pad.
Press your fingers across tape gently to ink it up!

The tape will look something like this:

Now you are ready to press the piece of tape onto your cardstock piece:

A look at the first "stamped" tape:

And a look at all the stamped "tape" before I stamped my image:

Now you can stamp your image! 
I used black so that it would really pop off the colored stamped tape!
(Sorry I forgot to take a pic of this step!)

My finished card:
What a fun technique!!

The "Enjoy the Day" tag is part of the Tags Rubber Stamp (G483) set!
I just love the result of this technique! 
Simple and yet so fun!!

Be sure to check out the Great Impressions Stamp store for all kinds of wonderful stamps!

Have a lovely day!!
