2013-03-02 Trying out Chrissy’s Tissue Tape
At the February Shoebox meeting my friend Chrissy gave all of us some fabric and silk flowers along with a roll of washi tape. Then my other Shoebox buddy, Maggi sent me a link on how to make a chevron using squares. So here are the supplies I used to create a CAS card. Then only things not pictured are the PearlEx and ink pad.
And here is what I came up with. I cut the 1″ squares on the diagnal and then glued them down. I must have a blade that needs replacing as the bottom line of the chevron was kind of furry. I added the washi tape and then to clean up the look I added a narrow strip of DSP to cover edges.
The final step was to add a spritz of PearlEx. That is the splotches and glimmer that you can see. I love the shimmer and I think it adds something to the flat card stock. Had I used the ready textured card stock, no PearlEx would have been needed.
The one and only stamp is by Stampin’ Up and purchased at the rummage sale of 2012 in a box of assorted images for $2. Here are all of the stamps that I got that day. I’m already looking forward to 2013’s sale!
