Washi / Tissue Tape Tag


Over on the PA blog Lin Brown is back with a fab washi tape background which you can see here. As I don't have much washi tape, I mainly used tissue tape but it's more or less the same thing and I used a tag.


I used the same colours as Lin, but a different stencil.


Then this is when I deferred as the next stage was flowers. Instead I stamped a portion of the flowery stamp on the LP028 at the top and the bottom of the same stamp at the bottom of the tag in blaze red stazon. I stamped the main image from the same plate in timber brown stazon and onto a cream coloured card, as I didn't want it to be stark white, cut out the section I wanted and hi-lighted various parts in shades of red.

This looks great Sam, with that central stamped image on top. Nice improvisation!

Fab improvisation Sam whilst still showing clearly where the inspiration came from. Those colours do work so well together.
