Looking for a fun new technique to add to your stamping repertoire? The Paint Chip Technique is a great companion for bold stamps or those with enough dense detail to be see easily on a busy background. Feeling Sentimental (see it online – 129630 – it’s a free Sale-A-Bration selection!) is a great stamp set choice.
This technique is just fun! You actually do it with masking tape…the kind used for painting walls. Plus it’s a great technique for guy cards, and I get lots of requests for those!
Paint Chip Technique Directions:
- Rip a piece of masking tape wider than your card stock.
- Press it into an ink pad, inking thoroughly.
- Press the inked tape onto the bottom of a Whisper White card stock.
- Lift the tape and press it again to make the next strip. Repeat until the card stock is filled. The color will lighten each time, creating a paint strip effect.
Super simple! And very effective — try it in a variety of colors. These two colors are both from the 2012-2014 In Color Collection: Midnight Muse and Gumball Green.
