Oh dear, I am so behind the times, aren't I? I've had two whole rolls of Washi tape for almost exactly a year now, since I bought it in Singapore on my last trip there. It was so eyebrow-raisingly expensive that it took me a while to choose - I went for red and grey because I thought they would be neutral-ish and go with most things. Because it was so costly, I've been wary of using it, but this week I broke my drought.
Now I'm wondering why I didn't use it before! It's fabby stuff! And because it's such hot property at the moment, there are oodles of designs and inspiration around using strips of it. I LOVE that because every scrapper/card-maker always has strips of scraps left over, and you know me. I don't throw anything out. I could start a shop selling strips if there was a market for them.
I lifted this card unashamedly from the lovely Nora, who is our guest designer for the current Scrap Whispers game. She used all Washi tape and I didn't. I combined it with my scrap strips, but doesn't it work well?
I liked the front so much that I did the same thing inside and the effect is delicious.
It is for these challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays - long and short
Simon Says Stamp - Washi tape
Stampavie - spots and stripes
