I Heart Washi Tape

Seriously, I love this stuff...and anything remotely similar, i.e. Tim Holtz's Tissue Tape, 7Gypsies Paper Tape, American Crafts Mixed Tape and this, that I spotted at CHA...

New Decorative Washi Tape from Hambly Screen Prints

I must get my hands on this...I sort of squealed when I saw it. :)
Completely love the birds on the wire!

And this from Smash Book...

That totally sums up how I feel about Washi Tape.

Cath over at Moxie Fab World (loving all the inspiration over there!) had another challenge that I played along with. The challenge is to create a project using decorative tape in an innovative way. So I pulled out some washi tape that I bought from PrettyTape on Etsy, a roll of Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and a couple of stamps.

I wove the tapes together and stamped over it with some black StazOn ink. The washi tape that looks like a weird mustard-y color is really more of a chartreuse green and much prettier in real life. I also embossed the stamped images with clear embossing powder to give it a more finished look.

There's still time to play along with Cath's challenge...the deadline is midnight EST today. Some of that yummy Hambly Decorative Washi Tape is up for grabs!
