Rainbow washi tape

Hello!

I have been waiting to take a break (from studies) and post this card which I made a few days ago. It is for Moxie Fab World’s The Washi Tape Challenge.

I love washi tape, and I have collected quite a number of them, but I never seem to be able to use them in a creative way. So when I saw the challenge at Moxie Fab (which was quite some time ago) I decided that it was time to think hard and make something creative. As Cath always mentions, I like it when a card, with all it’s elements mean something. For washi tape, I wanted to use it in a way that shows it’s characteristics, in a way that only washi tape can be used to get the same result.

My options were: 1.using it as tape (to stick something) 2. overlap it onto each other or on other paper 3. tape over stamped image.

After much thinking, I decided to create a rainbow look with different colored washi tapes. My initial idea was to partially overlap each color. But then the real challenge came…how should I present this rainbow?  Well, after much thinking…more like days of thinking…I decided on this design:

Rainbow

I think what helped the idea a bit was that I had already decided on the sentiment, so, place—>home—>and hence the row of houses. I Google searched “house outline”, took some free images, lined them up in MS Word and printed it out. After that I simply placed the washi tapes side by side and trimmed out the image. I saved the file, so it would be easy to reproduce!

The sentiments are from Hero Arts/Studio Calico HeyDay sentiment. I stamped the part “you are” from one of the stamps in Versamark and white embossed it on the black strip of paper. The other sentiment (which came in a banner) was embossed in black.

Before I forget, I wanted to point out two AMAZING cards that I spotted among the entries. I haven’t checked them all out, so I am sure there are more amazing ones. But the reason I wanted to point them out is because Pamela and Michelle used washi tape like I mentioned in #2. You should definitely check them out!

Thanks for stopping by!
