one more re-purposed card for southern breezes challenge

this one was made by attaching many many pieces of tan masking tape to a piece of cardstock in a random fashion.......i remember doing that in the 70's with empty chianti bottles....

pouncing several inks right onto the masking tape...(mustard, red, green, brown)...

then inking the whole surface with versamark embossing ink and covering that with clear embossing powder....heated it placed it on a chocolate brown card base....

looks like leather and is very shiny.

the printed image is from a used notecard that i cut into thirds, popped the bird out and i think it makes a fine masculine card...those are tough for me.

no sentiment....will save that for whatever occasion comes up.


  1. This is great! Love the texture the tape gives the card.

  2. As Pat said this is great. I need to try this myself. I really enjoy the colors you used.


thanks for leaving a comment ! if you have any questions on techniques etc......add it to a comment
