Use Your Washi!

This month the Tool/Stash Challenge on the Club Scrap forum is to use Washi Tape...  which I love and have tons of.  I must admit though that I don't use it as often as I could/should so today I want to share a card I made over the weekend using 3 of my many many rolls of washi tape.

I am so tickled with how well it turned out!  It didn't start out looking this good - I originally tried to "free-hand" tape placement and let me tell you it was a disaster.  My lines weren't even at all so I peeled off all the tape and decided to do it the right way.

My trick for getting straight washi tape lines....  I used my ScorPal cutting mat and it worked like a charm!

I tilted my card to the angle I wanted my stripes to be placed then took a long piece of the washi tape (the polka dot strip near the center) and placed it along one of the inch marks through the center of the card.  I then was able to use the lines on the mat to line up each of the following pieces of washi tape.  I used 1/8" marks on the close together lines and 3/8" for the larger spaces which I later stamped with text and image stamps from the Garden Shed kit.

After I had taped up the entire card panel I used my exacto knife to cut it free.  And that's how easy it is to get perfectly aligned stripes of washi tape.

I was so tickled with my "water" gems coming from the sprinkling can...
