Since I'm still trying really hard to complete Stampotique Challenge Blog's challenges, here's a card for their Washi Tape Challenge!
I had a piece of leftover 140 lb. Strathmore Mixed Media cardstock, so I covered it with black and white chevron-patterned Washi tape, alternating the direction the chevrons were pointed. When that was done, I sponged on a few colors of Fresco Finish Paint by Paper Artsy but kept the paint layers thin so that you could still see the tape pattern. I *think* (as in dimly recall) I used Stone, Irish Cream, and Mermaid, then let this piece air dry because I was afraid my heat gun would melt the Washi tape.
When it was dry, I stamped Stampotique's Stack of Birds using black Archival ink, then colored the birds and ground using Distress markers, which are slowly growing on me. I added some clear Gelly Glaze pen to the birds' eyes, which didn't hurt them a bit. Weathered Wood Distress ink was sponged around the Washi'd stamped panel.
Patterned papers from one of MME's Lost & Found pads were layered and thin chevron-patterned Washi tape was layered over the seams where the patterns met. Three strips of the larger chevron-patterned Washi tape, that was used on the stamped panel), were added going horizontally.
A sentiment from justjohanna/Odd Bird Planet was stamped onto patterned paper using Onyx Black VersaFine ink and die-cut. A small scrap of leftover Strathmore Mixed Media cardstock was sponged with the same colors of Fresco Finish Paint as above, then die-cut, and used to mat the sentiment.
The sentiment and image panel were adhered to the card and the entire card was edged with Weathered Wood Distress ink.
