Use Washi Tape

Hello – This is the theme of the new challenge at The Alphabet Challenge – to use some washi tape.

I actually don;t have very much Washi tape at all. It isn’t something I use – at all. I must have bought some at some point, because I used the only washi tape I could find in my stash – and I have been looking for ages:

That’s the tape – right there at the bottom of the card – those two strips of tape. That’s it – my supply of washi tape……..

I decided to use it as a border – as you see – by sticking to the bottom of some patterned paper that came with a recent Tonic Craft Kit which is still sitting on my craft table.

Also sat on my table were these red snowflakes. I had cut them out of some red shiny and textured paper – also from Tonic – but hadnlt got around to using them them. I had a plan for another card, but that plan changed drastically, so these were sitting there all forlorn – I just had to put them to use.

The snowflakes are from Uniko, and I think they look stunning in this red paper, and I tried to capture the shine:

The word is also die cut from that same red paper, but for some reason the Gemini Go squishes the pattern – the Gemini Junior didn’t. The word is also layered with white card for added sturdiness.

I hope you can come and join us, as I certainly want to see your creations with washi tape – I need inspiration!
