Taped Card

Hi Everyone!

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!
