Hi, as promised, I'm back with my calendar entry for Week 5 of The Craft Barn Calendar challenge. The theme for this particular week was 'paper tape'. I had a whole lot of fun doing this, tried a technique I'd never used before and even quite like the result!
Day 2 of Paper Tape week), I covered my piece of card in masking tape. I didn't have any smooth tape, having finished a roll about two weeks ago (I wish I'd saved some now!), so I improvised and used general diy masking tape which has a bit of a texture to it. Tearing little pieces off and layering them over my piece of card, I covered the whole piece then sprayed it with Walnut Ink Crystals dissolved in some hot water, and allowed the ink to have a good roll about all over the place, seeping into all the nooks & crannies, then I mopped up the excess. Once it was dry, I stuck some lovely wide washi? tape across the middle of the piece of card. The Stampers Anonymous/TH images were stamped onto Kraft cardstock with Coffee Archival Ink and then cut out, and the calender was mounted and attached.
I'd also like to enter this into the Eclectic Ellapu Challenge who have a theme of It's A Vintage Thing.
Bye for now
