May team training ...

Welcome to our latest edition of Team Training brought to you this month by myself, Jane Howden.

Each month one of our team will inspire you with a little tutorial, tip or trick to help you in your scrapbooking pursuits.

This month I just wanted to share with you a very quick and super easy way of creating lovely cards - truly this could not be easier !

Use masking tape and ink to create your card background

What you will need ...

Masking tape
Glossy white photo paper
Water based inks
Stamps and stamp block
Cardstock for card base

Tear off a strip of masking tape and ink it up .
Place your inked tape over your glossy picture paper. 
Repeat using different ink colours. 
Place a piece of scrap paper over the strips and  press down. 
Start peeling your tape strips off your photo paper.  Do this slowly to avoid tearing (holding down the photo paper while you pull masking tape helps).
Let ink dry fully. 
Use your  image stamps to complete your card and mount onto cardstock. 
You can add other embellishments if you prefer.  

Why not give this a try !

Don't forget to have your entry in for our challenge this month. Some lovely prizes on offer - one prize by vote, another completely by random draw and a guest designer spot to offer one lucky entrant. You have until 11.55 on the final day of the month to have your submission linked. Please remember we only accept combining our challenge with a sketch challenge.
