The power of Washi unleashed!

Hi guys,

I am just so overly excited about this post.. There is a craze going on about Washi in crafting and it is rightly so.. It is just so awesome and super cool.. Takes seconds to take a project from ordinary to extraordinary...Am on a roll and i can make quick cards.. Some right under 3 minutes once the idea is clearly formed in my mind.. Such endless possibilities.. Definitely a must-buy for all people who want to give their projects that little bit extra...

I got my pack of washi tapes which I purchased from rachana and was just fiddling around wanting to use them when I got my eureka moment.. the card an about to show you guys I made in 3 mins flat.. How cool is that, eh?? Enough of rambling...Just go and check out the card

I honestly am in love with this card.. It's one of those cards which take your fancy and you like admiring your own work once in a while... :D

Anita Kejriwal said...

Was really unsure about these tapes. Thats a cool card! Thanks for sharing!!

Chrissie said...

Sadly, adding washi tape to your card means that is is no longer a One Layer Card, which is the focus of our challenge this week!
If you are unsure of the requirements, do check out the guidelines on our blog!
Thanks a lot and do join us again next time.
