Cute Koala!

We have a new challenge at Creative Knockouts this week.  The challenge...washi tape.  I have to admit, washi tape is a true challenge for me.  I am not a fan.  It is too see through for me.  It really doesn't layer well.  In fact, I only own one roll and that was given to me.  Now ribbon on the other hand....   I pulled out that roll of washi tape and got to work, and I have to say, I am pleased with the result.

This is Kiwi Koala's Gift from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I colored Kiwi with Copic markers and used the Silhouette to cut him out.  The roll of washi tape I have is very wide, so I used it for the bottom panel of the card.  The polka dots are actually silver and they have great sheen to them, but it was very hard to capture in the picture.  I had done another project using the Happy Birthday embossing folder from Cuttlebug and a scrap was laying next to my work space.  I realized the card stock was the perfect color and cut the word "birthday" from the scrap.  I die cut "happy" and had a quick and easy sentiment.

How do you feel about washi tape?  I am looking forward to seeing how other people use it.  Maybe I will find a new appreciation for it.
