Masking Tape Background

You will need:-

Card stock
Masking tape
Dye inks
Clear embossing powder
Heat gun

Start by tearing up your masking tape and putting it on to your card stock

Cover the whole of the card stock leaving no spaces

Ink over the card stock - I used Butterscotch

Sponge some contrasting ink on - I used ginger

Add another colour if you want to - I added a bit of lettuce

Cover the whole sheet with clear embossing powder - no need for a holding medium

Use your heat gun to melt the powder

The finished piece all ready to cut to size and use on your cards, atc's or whatever
