we grow great by dreams

In one of my old Stampers Sampler magazines (June-July 2006) is a card by Hannamaija Teisko of Finland on which she used bits of making tape to create a resist pattern. I totally love her card and today I finally pulled out my tape and Distress inks and experimented. After inking the cardstock I overstamped it with a Cornish Heritage Farms backgrounder. The Distress ink wipes off the masking tape save the edges of it. I love the look.
Sentiment is also from Cornish Heritage Farm. The climbing plant is a die cut using Quickutz, the ovals are Nestabilities.
