Washi Tape Feathers
Washi Tape Feathers – my goodness the things you can create with Washi Tape – who would have thought? Not me, that’s for sure.
This card was inspired by Shelli Gardner, Stampin’ Up!’s esteemed leader. She presented this card at the Leadership Conference in Orlando Florida in January. While I wasn’t present at the event, there was live streaming of the event and I got to watch this creative technique. You gotta love technology.
Stamps: Work of Art, Gorgeous Grunge.
Ink/Markers: Lost Lagoon, Smokey Slate, Versa Mark.
Paper: Whisper White, Lost Lagoon, Silver Foil.
Accessories: Big Shot, Circles Collection Framelits (3rd smallest), 1-3/4” Circle Punch, 2” Circle Punch, All is Calm Washi Tape (retired), Whisper White Baker’s Twine, Lost Lagoon 3/8” Stitched Satin Ribbon, Silver Embossing Powder.
To create this card:
I used the Work of Art swoosh (hope that’s a word) and circle stamps. The swoosh is stamped with Lost Lagoon. The first swoosh is stamped off once and I stamped the other 2 swooshes without loading my stamp with ink. The circles were stamped in Smokey Slate and stamped off each time.
The sprinkle dots were stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge large splatter stamp inked with Soft Sky. I did not stamp off the ink before stamping on the Whisper White.
Cut a piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine double the length that you would like your feathers to be. Fold the twine in half.
Lay down a strip of Washi Tape the length of the Baker’s Twine. Cut another piece of Washi Tape the same length and lay the two pieces side by side overlapping a bit.
Lay the Baker’s Twine in the middle of the strip with the cut ends extending past the Washi Tape. The folded end will now be shorter than the Baker’s Twine.
Cut 2 strips of Washi Tape and lay them over the bottom layers and the Baker’s Twine.
Round the tip of the feathers with you scissors and narrow the bottom. Cut diagonal slits in your feathers without cutting into the Baker’s Twine. Don’t forget to fluff them out.
Don’t be like me and cut the sides going the wrong way. Which I did 2 times before finally getting it right…duh.
So now it’s your turn to create some Washi Feathers.
