Ways With Washi #2

Happy Monday, DeNami friends! This morning it's Emily checking in with another eidition of my month feature, Ways With Washi! 

Today I'm sharing ideas on ways you can use washi tape to create backgrounds on cards or other papercrafted projects. I've created three samples for your viewing pleasure, so let's get to them! 

On my first card, I used not one, not two, but EIGHT different washi tapes (all available from the DeNami store) to create a rainbow-striped panel perfect for backing these sweet St. Patrick's Day Chickies. To create the panel, I simply trimmed a piece of white cardstock to the desired size and adhered stripes of washi tape to it, side by side, wrapping the tape ends around to the back. I know that some folks prefer their washi tape to look neat, and this is an easy way to hide ragged, jagged ends.


On my second card, I took a more artsy approach to my washi background, letting those ragged, jagged tape ends all hang out. I created this background by adhering strips of washi tape directly to my card base and overlapping the edges slightly. Did you notice that I stamped the sentiment directly onto the washi tape background? Jet Black Staz-On ink is your best bet for that. 


Finally, on my third card I've used three different washi tape patterns to create a unique, almost quilt-like background. I simply cut a 4" x 4" square of white cardstock and adhered strips of washi tape in a concentric square patterns. The overlapped tape ends at the corners create subtle squares in the design that add to its overall visual interest! 


And there you have itthree different approaches to using washi tape to create your own custom backgrounds! 

How would like the chance to play around with some washi tape of your own? I'm giving away a roll of DeNami Design washi tape today over on my blog, My Little Slice of Bliss. I hope you'll swing by my blog for a chance to comment and win a roll of washi tape! 

Have a super day!
