NEW - for Daring Cardmakers

The dare over on Daring Cardmakers today is 'NEW' so I decided to try a new technique and made this card.......



I am a sucker for plaids and checks, so decided to make my own colourful background using inks and painters low tack masking tape. Firstly, I masked off the back of the card to keep it clean (I'm a messy inker!)


 Then I put down diagonal strips of masking tape, and started inking in between the strips......



Move the strips over and ink again in another colour, you can overlap the inking a bit, and leave some white space....


Carry on until your card front is covered 


Then apply the strips in the opposite direction and start inking again....



and here are a couple more cards made with more colourful check backgrounds



Do hop over to Daring Cardmakers and see what the rest of the design team came up with, and play along with the dare to try something new.....
