Fun with Washi
Hello all! It feels like it's been ages since I played along in a challenge, so that is exactly what I set off to do yesterday morning. PaperCrafts open auditions round of Gallery Idol started last week, so I thought that was a great place to start. I have to admit, I struggle with washi tape and when I saw that was the theme for open auditions I hesitated, but I set out for a challenge and that's exactly what I planned to do, challenge myself!
To make this card, I started by lining an entire 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch piece of card stock with various washi tapes from my stash. I was intending to use it to line my card base, but it was way too loud for my liking. Instead I die cut my sentiment from that piece using the Happy Trio Die. That way I got the colors & patterns, but the print wasn't so overwhelming. I also die cut my balloons from washi and added a bit more washi on the side of my panel. I don't know how clever or creative my use of washi tape is, but I think the end result is fun and perfect for a young boy!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a happy Monday!
