Valentine Tag


Another Valentine card today as I am playing along with the Clean and Simple challenge at Splitcoast.  I used the 'Magic Masking Tape' technique for the background of my card.  It is a simple and fun thing to try.  I pressed my masking tape directly onto my Distress ink pad-sticky side down.  When the tape is all inked up, I placed it onto my paper and rubbed then removed.  It gives you distressed looking lines.
Next, I cut the tag then stamped it and added it to my card front.  I stamped the heart again so I could colour it with Copic markers and pop dot it onto my tag.
Thanks for much for coming by and taking a look.

I am also adding my card to these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp- TWINE or STRING

Supplies:  stamps; Printworks, Autumn Leaves/ Distress ink (Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick, Barn Door)/ masking tape/ tag die/ Copic markers/ black Memento
