APCC Week 24~Altered Playing Card Challenge~Washi Tape

Two for Tuesday!

Today I have my week 24 card pair done! Which is awesome because I love this challenge and super awesome because this week's prompt included the use of washi tape!

You can see and join the fun HERE at Claudine's blog. We are on week 24 of this 26 week project and I cannot believe it has gone so fast! If you want to play along, it is totally fine! There is a Facebook group that we post in and it will carry on, so everyone is welcome to join up anytime.

This is such a fun way to play and this technique....I LOVE it! I will be making more to share for sure! Claudine has a fabulous how-to HERE on her blog.

To me is was simple as simple can be. Cover the card with an arrangement of tape. You can use tape, ribbon or paper strips, whatever suits your fancy. Just use some glue or sticky tape to keep all the pretty rows in place.

I used a fun stamp and some Distress Ink for color on this purple background. I love this corset stamp! So fun! It is Graphic 45/Hampton art. The "Paris" stamp is Tim Holtz.

I used a Tim Holtz mini butterfly thin die to cut here. The hearts die is Simon Says Stamp. I embossed the manila layer with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. It is inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink and edged with Potted Soil Archival Ink.

What do you think? I am so excited to share these with you and really hope you can incorporate this into your makes!
