Time Flies when You are having Fun!

 Hi Everyone!
Michelle here to show you how to make a fun and easy background for this card using dry wall mesh tape!


To make this card, you will need the following materials:
Time Flies and Relaxing stamps from Sin City's For Him rubber plate.
Drywall mesh tape from the hardware store
Cherry and Teal color shine by Heidi Swapp
Gold dusted dew drops from The Robins Nest
Assorted washi tapes, sponge dauber, black ink, card blank, scraps of paper, scissors, glitter glue, adhesive, pen to color in  and foam tape.

So first you need to tear off a strip of the tape and peel off it's backing. It will be sticky, but not permanent. Place it on your blank card and press down lightly. Next spritz your color shine ink onto a paper plate and use a sponge dauber to dab the ink onto the card- this gives you better control as to where the ink will goes since the mesh holes are so small.  Let dry before you begin with the next color. Ink the edges of the card with black ink if desired.
 Let the inks dry completely before slowly peeling off the mesh tape or some of the inked paper will come off as well. I stamped both images directly onto the card. Then I stamped them again onto scrap paper to cut out and apply with foam tape for a little dimension.
I colored the clock in and accented with glitter glue.  Same for the relaxing stamp.
I added washi tape here and there and accented the card with the gold dusted dew drops.

 For the inside of the card I randomly placed some fun washi tape and added the greeting.
I hope you liked my card, thanks for coming by!
