Painter's Tape Technique

So, I finally got around to trying this technique I saw at Convention.  I had 10 minutes before the local hardware store closed when I remembered WHY I needed to go there ALL DAY...lol and I am glad I did. This technique is so much fun and so easy! I started off with a Very Vanilla base and for the second layer, I took the painters tape, put the sticky side down onto the Blushing Bride ink pad and lifted it off and then onto my cardstock, gave it a good press down, and then lifted it off and viola! I did this with the next two colors, using a fresh piece of tape for each color, and those colors are Pool Party and So Saffron. I then inked my edges of that layer of Very Vanilla and adhered it to the base.  I ran a piece Chocolate Chip cardstock through the Fancy Fan embossing folder and flagged the ends and stamped the numbers from Bring on the Cake set in Chocolate Chip ink onto Blushing Bride cardstock and punched it out with my 2 1/2" Circle punch, sponged the edges and popped it up using Dimensionals. I finished off the card with a bow made from Pool Party Seam Binding ribbon. Now, get out there and get some painter's tape!

Love the colors on this card and what a fun technique! I'm having trouble finding the color of seam binding that you suggested, though. (Got a great laugh out of that one!) TFS!
