Hi friends. Today's technique challenge on SCS was to use tape.
I like the look of washi tape, but don't have very much. Since I have no blue, and that's what I wanted to go with my card, I made my own washi tape using scor-tape and a coffee filter. I filled one side of the filter with the scor-tape. Then I used several different blue distress stains to color the filter. After drying it with my heat gun, I cut apart the strips of tape and then stamped some patterns on some of the strips, using ribbon stripes from Gina K Designs. The one real disadvantage of this faux washi tape is that it is permanent; you can't lift it off and move it like regular washi tape. The coffee filter is also less transparent than regular washi tape.
I inked the background (leaf & floral - hero arts) with bashful blue & misted lightly with water before stamping.
The main image is from don't worry (our daily bread designs). I used inktense pencils and a water brush to color it.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
