{SS} Monthly Technique Challenge: Painter's Tape

Good morning!!
Are you ready for SweetStamps Monthly Technique Challenge?
This months challenge is: 
Painter's Tape Technique
This is SUPER easy and it is so much fun to do!! If you do not have the Painter's Blue Tape, you can also you regular masking tape as well; which is what I used.
I cut three strips of tape, that were longer than my piece of white cardstock.
I took my SweetStamps Ink Spots and rubbed them on the sticky side of the masking tape.  I went light and heavy on some spots.  You will never get the same look each time and that is the beauty of this technique.  Decide where you want to lay your tape on the paper.  Then lightly rubbed the backside of the tape, making sure to stay away from the edges.  If you do, you will get a harsh line fro the edge of the tape.  Once I laid all three colors, I then stamped my main image onto the colored background.
