Moxie Fab Washi Tape



So a while back I made this card with a sort-of-quilty washi background, and I decided I wanted to try it again - perfect timing with the Moxie Fab Washi/Stickers challenge.  Here's the original card:

I used the same tapes again - all from We R Memory Keepers - because I find having the tapes exactly the same width makes a big difference in my ability to line them up. I don't really want to talk about it.


Supplies: lots & lots of washi tape from We R Memory Keepers; Paper Smooches stamps; Memento Gray Flannel ink; Bic markers; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic; Stampendous Canary Fun Flock; classic small circle Nesties; bling strips from Dollarama


It just wasn't enough to gloss up this fun chick's eyes, beak, and feeties....she needed some Fun Flock to fluff her up too :) Is it just me, or does her expression say "WHOA, you're old?"

A photo tutorial is truly beyond my capabilities, but the trick to getting the perfect edges? A craft blade, and a gentle touch. Once all your washi is lined up how you want it, carefully slice with the blade. The translucency of the washi tape makes it very easy to see where you need to cut. 

xoxo,
Jessi

I'm not sure this card could be any more adorable, Jessi! One of the many things I like about washi tape? It doesn't immediately stick forever, so it can be moved if it's not quite right the first (fifth?) time. ;)

So cute! I love washi tape! And I haven't seen these ones before. Very pretty. Good tip too that I need to remember. Have the same problem.

'Sort-of-quilty Washi' now I think you are onto something here, it looks fabulous Jessi (maybe the technique name could use a little work though lol).
