I got to play a bit today.
Well actually I could have played all day, but I ....actually I really didn't do to much but laze around.
I was jumping around on YouTube and blogs last week and came across this cool idea.
How to make your own tissue tape.
Sadly I don't recall which blog it was though. Plus she called it washi tape.
Here is the finished card I made with my homemade tissue tape.
First you will need some two way (double sided) tape. I used the left over tape from when we put the plastic on the windows of our camp. You could use sticky strip, or score tape, or any other 2 way tape with a film on it. You will also need tissue paper, stamp, ink and scissors.
Next you are going to adhere your tissue paper onto your two way tape.
Then trim the overhang off.
Then stamp, and stamp and stamp :)
The hearts were neat, but I wanted to take it up a notch.
So what I did was after I adhered the tissue paper, I inked the tissue with tea dye distress ink.
Then stamped the tape measure stamp with vintage photo.
I love how this turned out :)
I inked around the edges of tissue before adhering it to the card front.
As you can see, I didn't line these ones up perfectly, but I like this look.
Just think of the endless possiblities....coloured tissue paper or pattern tissue paper.
I wrapped crochet cotton around the bobbin.
And this is the money shot ;)
Again here is the finished card :)
Onto My Day:
Slept in again, even with the time change, teehee. I love weekends ;)
Heather got me to watch GRIMM. Oh it was really good. I think I have to add this show of my must sees.
Only downfall is it is on Friday Night, which is my scrap booking night. So I will have to watch it online.
Walking Dead is on, so I have to run and enjoy my zombies ;)
