Washi Tape Card

Friday morning I whipped out this adorable card using washi tape in place of any patterned paper for that evening's workshop.  
CCTMH Lifting Spirits Stamp set & Lagoon Washi Tape | Card by Lalia Harris @

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!)
