Made in Minutes!

Good morning my sweet friends & welcome to another "Made in Minutes!" 
I hope you ALL had a FABULOUS weekend….for me….it was busy, but FUN!  I don't know about all of "YOU", but I think my tummy is STILL full from all the YUMMIES we had for the Super Bowl yesterday! ;)

Okay, for my card today, it took me around 17 minutes to make! I tried a technique that I learned from Day 6 from my Online Card Class!  The technique was called "Masked Stripe Background".  I wanted to try something using a heart mask just to see how it would turn out….and I actually LOVED it! 
Basically what you do is put some masking tape, washi tape or post it tape & place it on your paper & start inking! After each time you ink, you are going to move your tape each time until the area you like is all complete!  I probably could've finished this quicker, but I kept stopping & over analyzing it after each time I moved the tape! lol….. 
As you can see in the picture below, after I removed the heart mask, it came out super clean & bright! 

Here is my finished card in its entirety!  At the end, it landed up being a SUPER SIMPLE card that was REALLY easy to make! Just as long as you don't stop after each time you move your tape to analyze it, then you will be just fine!!! hehehe! ;)
