Home-made Washi Tape Card by Deborah

In the July issue of Scrap365 magazine, Emy Buxton explained how to make your own washi tape using microporous surgical tape. This can be found with the sticking plasters and bandages in chemists and supermarkets. Mine, from Sainsbury’s, is called Ouch and cost just 50p for 5 metres of 2.5cm tape.
I taped lengths of the tape to a craft mat, coloured with ProMarkers in Carmine, Sky Blue and Lime Green and stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento dye ink. I used stamps from Tim Holtz Bitty Grunge set.
I attached the washi tape to a card blank and stamped an image from Lynne Perrella Collection 006 with the Memento ink onto a sheet of white copier paper. After colouring the stamped image with ProMarkers and gluing it down, I made party hats with leftover pieces of the washi tape. The stamped border underneath is from My Mind’s Eye – Ginger – Pictures.
Finally, I coloured Tim Holtz Idea-ology Grungeboard letters with the Carmine ProMarker.
