Hi card making friends. Today’s blog hop is Creating with Washi Tape for Stamping Techniques 101
I can’t wait to see how the design team has incorporated this month’s challenge into their stamping – can you?
Washi tape is light, sticky but repositionable (if you’re very careful), and comes in an array of designs and colours.
It can be used in one strip to create a border, or many strips to create a background. I settled on the 1 strip idea (after many attempts, haha).
Sandi’s Tips and Tricks:
- Decide ahead of time how you are going to colour your image because that determines which Black Ink Pad you will use:
- Download my pdf – Which Black Ink Should I use – Which Black Ink Should I use
- Stamp the image on the Whisper White piece and let it dry. Then on the bottom of the card base if you wish. For the card on the right, I did a second stamping on white, coloured and cut out one of the small flowers and attached it to the bottom of the card with a glue dot.
- I coloured my images with my Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi Stampin Write Markers.
- Angle cut the piece of Whisper White before adhering it to the card base.
- Attach the piece of Washi Tape. For the card on the left I decided on the white space across the top. For the card on the right it added the perfect transition from one color to another.
- In both cases I chose the Pop of Pink Washi Tape in Black with Gold Flecks; adding just the right amount of bling to my cards. Along with a few gold Sequins of course, LOL.
