Paint Chip Technique: Feeling Sentimental

paint chip technique feeling sentimental

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:

  1. Rip a piece of masking tape wider than your card stock.
  2. Press it into an ink pad, inking thoroughly.
  3. Press the inked tape onto the bottom of a Whisper White card stock.
  4. 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.
