Love is spoken here! - AHSC #68

It is time for another awesome sketch from the team at AHSC - Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

I decided to try a new technique that I have been seeing around the web using painters tape. It was super easy to do. I will outline the steps:
  • First you want to choose your colour or colours. In this one I used Cotton Candy, Juniper and Slate. 
  • Get your painters tape out and cut it. Depending on your project you do not have to measure it but I did, I wanted to make sure the ink stayed within the circle.
  • Take your tape and ink the sticky side up directly on the ink pad.
  • Adhere to your project in the desired location.
  • Repeat with additional colours. 
  • Once all the colour layers are down put a scrap paper over top and rub down or burnish it to make sure the colour transfers.
  • Gently remove tape.
  • Embellish as desired. 

Products used:

- Lollydoodle (retired)
- White Daisy card stock

- D1306 Treasure Life (retired)

Misc.: (non CTMH)
