Technique Tuesday - Washi Tape...

Have you joined the Washi craze?  I hadn't until I got a bunch of it at convention.  Now I am finding all kinds of fun things to do with it.  Here's one - create a new background with it.
 Here's what you need to create this background:
  • Washi Tape - 3-4 coordinating patterns
  • Piece of Cardstock - your color is only dependent on if you have any Washi that is transparent.
  • Embossing Folder - I used the Argyle
  • Sponge and Ink (not shown)
  • Sanding Block (not shown)
 Begin in one corner of your cardstock and put a piece of your first of Washi at an angle.
 Continue lining up each strip of Washi with the next.  I leave a bit hanging over which helps hold your cardstock in place.
 Here's what it should look like when you are done placing your Washi.
 Here are the two ways you can handle the Washi tape ends.  You can trim them off with scissors or,
 Just fold them over to the back!
 Next take your Washi background and run it through the Big Shot with your embossing folder.
 Lightly sand the top of the embossed pattern.
Sponge the top with a coordinating ink color (I used Basic Gray).
 Here is the card that I made with the background.  The little bat is made using the Owl Builder punch.  His wings are made using the owl vest.
Finally here is the inside of the card where I used the Washi tape horizontally.

Here's what you will need to duplicate this card:
Stamps:       Seasonal Sayings, Tags 4 You
Inks:          Basic Black, Basic Gray, Only Orange (marker), White Craft
Paper:       Only Orange, Whisper White, Basic Black
Other:        Witches' Brew Washi Tape, 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon (Black), Owl Builder Punch, Label
                    Bracket Punch, Argyle Embossing Folder, Sponge, Signo Gel Pen, Black & Orange Glitter
