I thought since I've thrown my hat in for the Gallery Idol contest this year, that I should show you what I've made and uploaded to the Flickr Gallery. This years open audition round was creative uses of Washi Tape or Decorative Tape.
The inspiration for my embellishments on my first card came from a make 'n take I did at Winter CHA in January. I made some Washi Feathers at the Glitz Design booth and fell in love with how easy they were to make! So THANK YOU Glitz for inspiring me with this one!
I have no idea what brands of Washi I used but I knew I wanted to use this wide Gold Chevron Washi for one of my feathers and pair it with some vibrant color. I used the Thanks word die from Simon Says Stamp and die cut it with the Foiled Cardstock Stack from DCWV. "Thanks" was adhered using Tombo Multi Mono glue in just a few little places so that it would have dimension layered over the feathers.
To tie the whole thing together, my Washi panel was layered onto a Gold Foil panel with foam adhesive.
My next card uses Washi Tape as a background "paper" behind the Balloon cutout. These are just fabulous Balloon dies from Simon Says Stamp. The Happy Birthday die layer just perfect over my vellum topped Washi tape!!! Sentiment is from Birthday Balloons. All ink is the Simon Says Stamp Premium Dye Ink.
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoying my Washi cards!! Good luck to everyone that entered!!!!
