Today’s card was created for the SUO Challenge #88 – Fun With New Toys! I decided to play again with some of my favourite new toys from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Catalogue (28 Jan – 30 June). How awesome does the Gold Watercolor Wonder Washi tape (sneak peek item) look coloured with ink!
I discovered this technique by accident as I have never seen this before (although I am sure I am not the first one to discover this). I had been playing around with the painter’s tape technique and thought why can’t I just use washi tape instead as it is a similar low tack tape adhesive. I then discovered due to the translucent pattern of the striped & dotted washi tape that it looked great coloured.
I loved this card so much and was excited about my new washi tape colouring technique that I shared it at the team meeting I hosted last night. Everyone got to make the card! I also shared with my fabulous team an easy way to create a watercolour style flower without the colouring. The new Watercolour Wonder DSP has some great colour patterns that you can stamp the flower image directly onto then cut out. Here is a close up of the flower (centre of flower coloured with Stampin’ Write maker):
This card uses a number of new Stampin’ Up! sneak peek items: Gold Watercolor Wonder Washi tape, Happy Watercolor stamp set, Gold Sequins, Watercolor Wonder DSP and Sale-a-bration twine.
