More washi ...

You may know that I am currently obsessed with making custom washi tape ... and today it has proved to be very, very useful.  You see it is theme week at "Less is More" and the theme? ... use washi tape!!!

This time I made a sheet of washi using Stick It and tissue paper which I stamped randomly with shades of green.   I die cut a stitched rectangle out of card and then die cut the random dots.  It was at this point that I had made the process very difficult because I then die cut the dots from the washi tape and tried to line it up with the dots on the rectangle ... not very easy!  I did manage it in the end! (along with a few choice words!)

I used:
Distress inks - twisted citron, mowed lawn, cracked pistachio
STAMPlorations - Mixed Media Grunge, Mixed Media Elements
CUTplorations - Stitched Rectangle
Lawn Cuts - Hello
Sizzix Tim Holtz - Mixed Media Dies
Stick It adhesive
