Lela says, "I had two weeks off for the holiday season, and I was feeling very creative. I wanted to see if I could come up with a theme. I was listening to Christmas music and scrolling through all the past themes on the blog history. All of the sudden, it hit me. “Here we come a-washi-ing.” And an idea was born. I made my own washi tape with instructions from Julie Balzer." (Be sure to check out Lela's SCS gallery for a full description and the link to Julie's tutorial!)
Stephanie says, "My collection of Washi Tape is large (okay, so extremely large is probably a more accurate description), so I decided to use lots of it to create a Washi Tape background. I added a sticker sentiment, a doily, and blinged-out Christmas tree."
Lauren says, "I've been wanting to play along with Leslie's very first Crooked Stamper Sketch Challenge, but there wasn't really a way to work in single strip or two of tape. So, like Stephanie, I decided to use a bunch of patterns and fill a whole panel. I started by laying one strip in the center on the diagonal, then added a strip at a time, at right angles, so that each addition is over the last tape but under the next. Since many of my tapes are sheer, you can also see a bit of the design on the lower tapes through the ones on top, which gives even more variety!"
Just in case anyone's still feeling a bit superstitious about Friday the Thirteenth, we've decided to make it even more desirable to link up with us this fortnight: one lucky random cardmaker will be chosen to win a little pack of holiday embellies which OF COURSE includes some fun washi tape:
So grab your washi, your deco tape, your fabric tape, or heck, even your duct tape; use it as an accent, make a fabulous background... or do something in-between; but be sure to link it up here by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday February 25th. Keyword for galleries or Flickr is JB:15:04.
