A {One of a Kind} Card...

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Hi there!  It seems like I get up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night almost every night.  A few nights ago though, this card popped into my head. Bizarre, I know!  I finally got some time alone in my studio and I had fun figuring out how to use the "washi tape" technique.  I think it works best with wide sticky tape, but all I had was skinny tape, but it still turned out just fine, just a little extra effort.

I started out with some tissue paper trimmed to 1" width.  If that tissue paper looks familiar, it's Clear & Simple Stamps signature blue tissue paper that comes in every order.  I used Background Basics I and True Blue Fan ink to make all my strips of "washi tape".  It was very easy to do.
Adding the lime green floss was something that almost didn't happen.  It was an afterthought when I realized I didn't want a completely monochromatic card.  I just love the pop of color it adds.  I chose the sentiment to reflect the different patterns in the strips.  I have a friend that is definitely one-of-a-kind and I know she will love this card.

Have a great day!
