Book Study - Resist with Torn Masking Tape

We're doing a Book Study as a group on NGS. We are using Nancy Curry's book "Texture Effects for Rubber Stamping". This card is inspired by her Silent Whispers card. I need Birthday cards I can sent to guys, so my mind is on Birthdays. I started by stamping balloons with VersaMark ink on glossy card stock. Then heat set.

I tore a strip of masking tape and laid it on the card stock. Used a cosmetic sponge and blended two shapes of blue Distress inks to color that section. Start at tape edge and work the ink toward the right side. Rub firmly to reveal the resist images. Remove masking tape.

I then taped the other half of the torn masking tape a bit off to the left. This time I used two shades of purple Distress inks to color this section with a new cosmetic sponge. Nancy says it's okay to rub this ink onto the other exposed section.

These steps were continued until the entire card was colored with these same Distress ink combinations.

I then over stamped the balloons and string with purple Adirondak ink.

I stamped some words with black Archival ink and layer this piece on to white card stock.
