- This to That tape by American Crafts
- An Ink Pad (I used my favorite ... VersaFine Onyx Black by Tsukineko)
- A Stamp (a background stamp or border stamp works well ... the stamp I used came from Glitz Design's "laced with grace" set of clear stamps)
- Tissue Paper (I used sewing pattern tissue from an old pattern)
I found a section of the sewing pattern that was blank. If you are familiar with sewing patterns, there are generally large areas that don't have print on them. I put a piece of scrap paper under the tissue, because I found that the ink bleeds through the tissue. I stamped my image on the tissue and allowed the ink to dry.
Then I carefully placed a length of the tape on the back side of the stamped image. The tape I used had a paper backing on one side which I left in place. (I think it would be pretty much impossible to use if you didn't!)
The final step was to carefully cut the tissue paper around the tape, leaving a strip of homemade washi tape.
After it is cut out the tape looks like this...
Of course I had to use the tape, so I made a quick card. The tape is layered behind the bird!
I hope you enjoyed your visit to the Green House on the Hill. Stop back soon!
