Default TLC688 ~ Inking with Tape ~ {4/30/2018}

Hello and Welcome to another fun Technique Lovers Challenge!

I had such fun with this one, it's an oldie but goodie for creating quick, simple backgrounds.


In the past, it was referred to as 'Magical Masking Tape' technique. With that technique you needed to use masking tape on glossy paper. Well since many of us don't own any glossy paper and masking tape would tear regular cardstock, I decided to re-name it.
I have added a link to Beate's original post above if you want to use that one.

Here is a short picture tutorial to show you how to do this. I always find seeing it helps me better understand.


Step #1- Gather your supplies

I used Distress Oxide inks for my card because I love how they layer.
You could use any kind of ink as long as you ink pad has a bit of juiciness to it.
I used Painter's Tape as it has a low tack and won't tear your cardstock.


Step #2- Ink your tape

Take a piece of tape and press it directly onto your ink pad.


Step #3- Press inked tape onto your cardstock

I started with my lightest color first. After pressing the tape onto the ink, press and rub it onto your paper to transfer the ink. Lift carefully and ink again.
Note: I used my Misti as an inking surface but you do not need one to use this technique.


Step #4- Finish adding ink with the tape

Continue to add colour until you are happy with the coverage.
Now you can stamp over your inked bkg to create a card.





Be sure to add the keyword to you card so it will be added to the gallery.
The TLC688 Inking with Tape gallery can be found here.


The card I created for the challenge is called
Celebrate- Inking with Tape

Hope you will play along with us.

It is indeed a goodie...and I have to confess that I have only ever twice used glossy card because it's hard to come by here. For those who don't have painters tape (even harder to find by here!!), I've always found that just removing a little of the tackiness by pressing regular masking tape against my arm or my jeans has worked fine.

Thanks for recommending DOX as an option, Karen! I'll try to sneak a quick card in before work.

thank you for this fun challenge, my first take I used so many different colors that I didn't like it, the advantage from this technique is if you don't like it spray water over it!! I'll use the other for another card

here's my card

Smile TLC688 two trees

had fun using tape with ink- painter's tape from my DH- adding fussy cut trees and a sponged sentiment circle. Here's two trees

After going trailer camping and hiking for 3 1/2 weeks, we are home and feeling almost caught up. Finally had a chance to play in Karen's awesome TLC688 Challenge. Thanks Karen for such a fun and easy challenge with cool results. Hugs, Nancy
