Masking Tape Technique

This is a technique explained to me by a Stampin' Up demonstrator.  You ink masking tape, then apply it onto paper and gently peel it off.  The texture of the tape makes a nice image. 

For this card, I cut a piece of 3 1/4" x 5" white cardstock, and inked 1" wide masking tape with three colors of ink.  Black embossing powder makes the sentiment stand out.  The tree image is from SU's Lovely as a Tree stamp set.

I like the texture of the background from the masking tape.  Now I just need to figure out a good way to ink the tape without inking all my fingers too!
