New Card and Fun Technique

Hello Bloggy Friends!
I'm super excited to show you a card I made this week for a few challenges including Young Crafter Unite Challenge #5
the background of this card (It's simple yet effective and all you need is painters tape). I will have a video posted up on my (Youtube Channel Starsinpalm) for those of you who rather see visual of the whole card coming together. I hope you guys love this card as much as I do, because I felt so inspired by the paper smooches stamp set I recently purchased ,I was just dying to make a card!



When using painters tape make sure to first lay it on your T-shirt or a blanket first so it looses some of it's tackiness, because if this step is skipped you may rip your paper ( The goal is to have it sticky enough that it will still adhere to your paper but can be removed with ease). Hope ya'll enjoy this quick and fun technique and let me know if you create any cool backgrounds using my tip! (It's also quite easy to punch shapes out of this tape but only once you have removed some of the tackiness.)

The Colors in this picture above really inspired me! the colors are so vibrant (Just love them)
