Have you tried the Painter’s Tape Technique yet? Chnaces are you may already have Painter’s Tape at home and this is a quick, simple, no mess way to create a colourful background. If you need to purchase some, you can find Painter’s Tape at any hardware store. It may be green or blue in color and has a light adhesive that makes it easily removable whether on painted walls or on card stock.
See the step by step instructions below.
I wanted to play with the new 2013-2015 In Colors some more so it was easy to decide what colors to use for this card. From left to right are Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush and Baked Brown Sugar.
I decided to leave a gap between each strip and at the edge but you could layer them closer together. It is actually easy to see the ink on the Painter’s Tape and decide where to place each piece.
The stamp set I used for this card is Summer Silhouettes. I know I am guilty of overlooking this stamp set often. A set of 9 it includes various leaf and flower silhouettes as well as a very functional border image to add finesse to cards stamped with this set.

Place a torn strip of Painter’s Tape across the ink pad sticky side down.
Lightly press on the tape to pick up the ink.
Place the Painter’s Tape onto the card stock and press on it again to transfer the ink to the paper.
Gently peel the tape from the card stock.
You can remove the tape as you add each colour or place all of them and remove them together.
