So, I recently posted about my masking tape love. I have it right now in 6 different sizes! Love it. Last night I began playing with some of it for card backgrounds. I tried a few different things on it and then today I finished off the front of them. I love the affects of using it overlapped as a background. Such great texture, pretty darn cheap and just flippin fun!
I do indeed love masking tape, but when using tape and then wet things like glue and what not I like to pack up the tape with some adhesive. I used what I always use Helmar's 450 Quick Dry adhesive just to ensure it stays put.
Here are a few of the cards I created to give away at work over the next month. Keep in mind they are very masculine as well, these are all going to men who work for a landscaping business.
One thing I love most about these is other than the taping aspect, these cards were all made in 5 minutes! So, they really took no time at all. I did the taping on them while watch TV last night.
|Just love this texture. Would have been cute for mummy cards as well.|
|You can see the different in added texture from applying different things and the treatment of those mediums here.|
|The green paper behind the sentiment is a fun velevet paper and then some chicken wire makes for some added fun!|
|I'm loving the cork coaster added to this one!|
|Lots of even more texture here. The gears are chipboard, and then the metal paper.|
