masking tape

the above was my very first attempt at this (by the way its a bit older to busy to stamp at the moment) but the strips were to long so I did another card below which I love

after randomly placing the tape over a piece of card stock you rub with an ink pad to pick up some of the ink. you can make it look like leather or dry ground I did one once that looked like a flower but can't find my sample in my files.

layered with some other stamps you have to use really strong glue though double stick tape and runners didn't work I think I ended up using tacky glue.

hope to have some more current stuff done soon

Thanks for visiting my blog! I love the tape-job you did! I actually liked the long strips and it sort of made me feel like the lion did a lot of shredding!
