Problem with drywall tape bubbling/sagging


Hello, I'm more of a painter but my fiance and I just bought our first house together and someone just threw up all new drywall in the house and didn't finish it. I'm attaching a pic of one of my problems and hope someone can help. In this pic I taped a seem in the ceiling. I used a layer of all purpose joint compound and bedded the tape. Then I put a layer of compound over the tape and when I came back the tape is like sagging or bubbled almost. I did a search but didn't find what I was looking for as to what I did wrong to cause this and what I can do to fix it. Thanks in advance for any help and I look forward to visiting this site!

Hard to tell from the pic but you probably let the mud get too dry before bedding the tape or not enough mud behind the tape.....tear it off and start again.
Now you can go over to the DIY forum and tell them you know all about taping
