Masked Wetlands and Clearance Rack Blitz

Hi there!  I'm back today with an experiment using masking tape on a card.  I did this card a few months ago but overlooked posting it.  This technique is all over the internet right now and it's fun to do, but a little messy so you may want to wear gloves.  Begin with a strip of masking tape (long enough to hold each end as "handles") and tap/gently press tape onto ink pad to soak up some ink, then press onto cardstock.  Repeat process using a different strip of masking tape for each color.  Stamp desired image(s) once the background is complete.  I actually stamped the goose onto the background, then stamped him again onto a scrap piece of cardstock and cut him out.  He is popped up on Dimensionals.  Don't worry about cutting out his legs!  They'll show up from the image stamped directly onto the cardstock.  Hope you give this technique a try! 

Now on to some business....Stampin' Up! has a Clearance Rack Blitz going on right now with some items discounted as much as 80%!!!  Click here to view all of the clearance items in my online store.  Please contact me if you'd like to order anything.  You may also place an online order.  Thank you!
