Working on Neenah solar white card, add washi tape to create triangle shapes. Make sure the washi is well adhered.

Choose your first colour, add some scrap paper or a sticky note to mask the adjacent areas. Add your ink in light circular motions.

Work in 3s, add the colour to 3 segments that form a triangle, this is kinder on the eye.

Continue with all your chosen colours until every triangle is coloured. Gently heat the washi tape with a heat tool/embossing gun to release the adhesive.

Flick with water and blot with kitchen paper to add a bleached effect to the coloured areas. Use a Black fine liner pen to outline the triangles. Your background is now ready to be mounted and have a sentiment added.

Tips -
Make sure that the washi tape is well secured, when removing it, you can heat with a heat tool as this will release the adhesive and not tear your card.
Add your colours in a triangular formation, this is more pleasing on the eye and helps give a well balanced effect.
Using a fine liner to outline your triangle will cover any small areas of colour bleed.
