When I saw the latest OWH sketch challenge:
Now about that embossing: I wasn't sure it would work, so I did a prototype:
I learned several things here. Yes, you can emboss on washi tape (at least this stuff). There are different kinds of tapes, and I really wish someone would hold a seminar to tell us the different properties of each. I'd pay for that.
So anyway, I've yet to successfully stamp onto washi and not have it rub off, so the tapes I've used to experiment have a coating of some kind. This blue one does, too. But Versamark ink is sticky, and then heating the powder is another "glue", so this seems to have worked. I did apply some anti-static powder to the rest of the pieces, and I used less-floofy sentiments. This Happy Birthday just isn't right.
In addition to the Thinking of You way up above at the beginning of the post, I used this one:
OWH. I hope to stamp and package all of these guys this week and get them out to our lovely East Coast coordinator.
I did think about using paper strips instead of washi, but I actually put away my 6x6 pads, and I'm not sure I want to get them out again. I may. Or not.
And if you think these cards look vaguely familiar, that's because they're just like this one with an extra blue row. Hey, a good design is a good design. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
