I've been reading about Washi tape in some of the blogs I follow. Photographs I have seen of it show all sorts of decorative patterns on tape. Many people have been using that tape as a paper crafting tool.
While I was in my basement last night I came across a container of tape. I don't think it's Washi tape, but I may be wrong. I know a school supply sales representative gave it to me a few years ago, but other than that I don't know the source of it. The rolls of tape that I have are solid colors in a variety of widths. Some are as thin as thread and others are an inch wide. Some are "flat" in color and others are shiny.
I cut a sheet of tag that measured 4" x 5.25" to use as my layering paper. Then I just added strips of tape to it. After I had added all the tape I wanted, I used Scor-pal tape to adhere the layering paper to an A2 card.
The text is from an Amuse Artstamp. I used a Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad for my ink because I knew it would dry quickly and wouldn't smudge. This was a super fast way to create a nicely textured card.
Off to present another parent and child literacy program.
Have a great day!
