This fun card reminds me of the print screened t-shirts that I am seeing in all the stores. The shirts have white on the fabric where it was folded under during the printing process and so the ink did not colour that part of the fabric. Inspiration can be found in so many places.
For this technique, stick pointy strips of low-tack or painters tape onto glossy white card stock. Allow a bit of tape to hang over the edge of the cardstock for easy removal. Sponge or brayer colored ink onto the card stock over the tape. Be careful that the ends do not lift. Leaving tape in place, stamp images over the colored background. Once dry, remove the pieces of tape. This technique is featured in the current Technque Junkies newsletter.
If you want to learn more techniques and templates, join me at my Technique Tuesday classes. At each class, we will make 3 cards and/or projects and full written instructions are provided. Click on the events button to the right to see my calendar.
