Washi tape...who knew? - CAN YOU HANDLE THE PRESSURE - TOP WINNER!

Pink Fresh Washi Tapes...What do you think?

Hi all!

Do you use a lot of washi tapes in your creations?  It's not something I have ever really gotten into, until recently.  I've had a few of Pink Fresh's washi tapes in my stash for a while, but have never really worked with them before.  After the recent Create & Connect, I decided to pull them out again and give them a whirl.

This card is inspired by...well... the current Inspired By Challenge! Liberty was taken on the colors however but the photo did give a starting off point.  For the background, the current Can You Handle the Pressure challenge helped with the decision of the embossing folder, circles.  This is a recent purchase from Simon Says Stamp called Dibble Tile.  Isn't it gorgeous?!?  Running your finger over it is like reading braille.  

On top of the background, a tool that has been in a drawer for YEARS finally got its day in the sun...the envelope punch board.  It's never been used...for shame...probably because the measurements on the board were printed in centimeters...we use inches here in the US and math isn't a favorite around here.  Luckily, the sticker was able to be removed, revealing inch measurements!  Who knew?  Not this lazy crafter...   

With the envelope created from white cardstock, and the edges highlighted with a little metallic gold watercolor paint, the Pink Fresh Artistic Dahlia washi tape was finally put to work.  It is really easy to attach the tape to a piece of card stock and die-cut it with the coordinating die...really easy.  Shamefully easy.......  Then with all the fabulous little paper flowers, the arrangement was created, with a little help from Papertrey Ink's Elegant Notes Foliage stamp set using gold pigment ink.

The butterflies, the heat embossed sentiment, and coordinating dies are from the new PinkFresh set given at the Create and Connect.  They promise it will be released soon, so keep your eyes out for it... it's beautiful!  The card was finished off with Cherry Blossom enamel dots.

I think I'll continue to play around with these washi tapes...I have 2 more styles in my stash that haven't been used yet.  That must be remedied!

Have a colorful day!
