Washi Wednesday – Blessed Easter

Washi Tape Medallion TechniqueHere is another way to use your Washi Tape. Punch a circle or oval and pleat the Washi tape around the circle overlapping the edge of the tape on about 1/4″ around the circle. Cover this circle or oval as in my sample with another circle, oval, or some other punched shape that covers the inside edge of the pleated Washi tape. Then use it as desired on your card.

I used the Blessed Easter stamp which is in the Occasions seasonal catalog. This stamp is a single stamp and is not being carried over to the new catalog. So you need to order it soon if you don’t already have it. You might consider cutting the greeting off and mounting it separately so you can use the tulips for other occasions. If you don’t want to separate them, you can use markers on the rubber to color just the tulips.

In this card, the image is embossed with black embossing powder. To get just this image and not the greeting, I cut a mask from copy paper and put some 2-way glue on the back of it. I allowed the glue to dry so it was temporary and stuck the mask to my stamp. Then I inked the stamp with Versamark. The mask gets the versamark on it but not the greeting under the stamp. It is important to remember to take the mask off before stamping the image on your cardstock! LOL! Yes, I say this from experience. :o)
