Tutorial Tuesday-Masking Tape Background

Many of us like to achieve something unique, but we are short on time.  Today’s tutorial helps you achieve a simple technique that is quick.  It is hard to tell from this picture, but the crackle background has three different pigment ink colours.  Although this look can be achieved by using small ink pads, this technique keeps your ink pads clean from other colours.


  • Masking tape
  • A variety of pigment ink pads

Ink masking tape well.

Here you can see the ink pad stamped with the first colour.  Next, tape your inked masking tape and press it into the open areas.  Repeat with a variety of colours until the background is completely covered.

Here you can see the variety of colours on the background.

That’s it in a nutshell.  Quick and simple.  Enjoy!
