Though I’ve collected a number of these fabulous tapes, I’m still rather new at using them. One thing I picked up this time around was the fact that Washi tapes are usually translucent. So when I layered the tapes on black cardstock for some added dimension, the three light colored strips came out muddy and very blah. Their true colors were retained when I layered the three over oatmeal cardstock. A sea change for sure!
The text on the last strip is upside down – a quirk I hadn’t noticed until I was done with the card. I’ve decided that it doesn’t really matter – it’s just texture and I’m fine with it.
Well, mostly . . .
