Friday morning I whipped out this adorable card using washi tape in place of any patterned paper for that evening's workshop.
I used the new Lagoon Heart washi tape in three rows starting at the bottom and over lapping a tiny bit so the pattern stayed consistent. I ripped a little extra off the roll, placed it on the card and trimmed it with my NON-STICK microtip scissors. The top row is the Ruby Chevron Washi Tape.
These scissors simply rock and are essential if you cut 3D foam tape or washi tape.
I really love the washi that we have right now. It sticks better than any I've had before--from a store or our older catalogs. If you've had a problem in the past, please don't give up. Give it another try!
The balloon and sentiment are from Lifting Spirits stamp set. I colored in the balloon with my new Shin-Han Markers, in Peacock Green, Turquoise Blue, Carmine, Clay, and Golden Yellow. I also used the clear blender to give a bit of "shine" or highlight to the top curve of the hot air balloon!
I didn't blend any two markers together but I did go over the same area a couple times to develop shadows and dimension on the hot air balloon.
Don't forget there's only a couple more days left to get the #30YearsOfHappy STAMP SET for FREE! (Yes, the stamp set really does have a # hashtag or pound sign in its name!)
