Wonderful Washi

How wonderful is washi tape? This card was so fast and easy I could easily make a dozen! (In fact, I made about a half dozen in less than 20 minutes, using images I had already stamped and colored.)

I’ve had this Stampendous! image (which I loved so much I bought two of the matching images)for more than a year, but never did much with it. The washi tape did the trick, presenting a perfect platform where the image could shine. First, I used a rainbow Kaleidacolor inkpad (Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko) to brayer color on a scrap piece of cardstock. The image was stamped and embossed in black, then cut and edged with a Krylon gold metallic marker.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts CL480. And the washi is from the K and Company Smash collection.

Thanks stopping by here, where the temperature outside is topping 100, but the stamping is always a cool thing to do.

Awash in Washi

Need to make a few cards, FAST? Yeah, me too. So I pulled out some washi tape, a few images and washi viola! So easy — the tape does all the design work. Just tear and stick, tear and stick — how much easier can it get?

Now… to make it even easier … use stickers!
