Garden of Friendship

Ah...Washi tape...how do I love thee?! Yep, I'm an addict. I can't resist a cute washi tape. I love the fact that you can add it to a layout or card like ribbon without it adding much bulk. But it has many other great values. Just Pinterest it. You'll see. Here I used the tape to cover some bright purple buttons. This wood washi tape is one of my favorites since I love being outdoors. I honestly don't know the makers of many of these tapes. I recently learned of an awesome idea from Arlene P: Write on the inside of the roll who makes it or from what collection its from. You should join the Stash Challenge over on the Club Scrap Forum and share your projects using washi.

Club Scrap papers, tag, ribbon and buttons. Darice embossing folder. Unknown Washi.
 
Tear washi into two pieces if one doesn't fit.
Fold over sides and trim closely to the back.
This keeps the washi tape from bunching at the sides.
Poke holes if you want to keep the button appearance.

If you're already hopping and linked to me from Tina's Blog, you're in the right spot. Gelatos are acid-free pigment ink sticks that can be used with or without water.  I love the bright colors and creamy texture of the Gelatos.  The fact they look like lipstick tubes is kinda cute too. 1. Directly color the stamp with your gelatos. I usually start with the lightest color first and work to the darkest. 2. Mist water directly on to the stamp. 3. Stamp image onto paper.  I used all sorts of papers: cardstock, watercolor and mixed media papers. I d…
