Tape Challenge

Here’s something I learned a couple of weeks ago, while working on an article about old(er) stash: Don’t save your precious stash for that ’special project’. Because you know what? You will put it in a safe place, pet it every now and then and eventually… forget all about it. Or, even worse: it will go out of fashion!

I’ve been collecting (washi) tape for a while now and I figured I’d better use it before my Mount Washi Tape turns into horribly outdated Mount Washi Tape. This is what I came up with:

For this card I adhered washi tape to a piece of card, stamped over it with StazOn and then cut the image out. myStamp BOX sets used: Lovely Houses, Itty Bittys, Cherry Blossoms and Border Lines.

I really liked the look of all the different tapes next to each other and thought they would make a great background:

myStamp BOX set used: Holiday Monkey. The hearts were colored with Faber-Castell Gelato and a wet brush.

And then I just wanted to get a little bit more messy and created this:

myStamp BOX sets used: Border Lines and Itty Bittys. The light green circles are also colored with a Faber-Castell Gelato and a wet brush.

OK… so now it’s up to you! I challenge you to get out your beloved (washi) tapes and favorite stamps and combine the two! Or, if you cannot bare even the thought…, dig up some of that old(er) stash that you have been saving forever and spruce it up with lovely stamped images!

Link up your myStamp BOX creations in the comments below. We would love to see them!

Have a great day! Use up some of that stash!
