Altenew April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!

Yay, it's the Altenew release of Washi Tape and Embossing Paste!
I am super excited to share my project with you.
If you've arrived from Ashlea Cornell 's blog, you are in the right place! For
all the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog.

For my project, I started out by applying the Botanical Rhapsody Washi Tape onto a piece of Altenew Parchment Card Stock. This Washi Tape is SO beautiful that it can be used on its own.

Coloring Washi Tape with Altenew Artist Markers Set D and Set E worked like a dream! 
Since Washi Tape is non-porous, it will not absorb the artist markers ink.
👉👉👉However, if you wipe/buff it off with a dry paper towel ( I just used my fingers!) it will leave a faint color! 💡 I colored part of the images with 2 shades of markers.
The more you repeat this process, the more intense the colors will become.
Imagine how you can incorporate this Washi Tape into your project with any colors!

I wish I could say that I came up with the brilliant idea of using the Geo Frame Die. But in reality, I made a boo-boo while coloring and there was no way I could wipe it off. 
Once the Artist Marker ink dries, it stays!

That's when I decided that I needed to cut out the error and used the Geo Frame for this job! 
Yay, go me! 😁 I also applied a piece of Gold Trim Washi Tape with the Fancy Hello Die
That little bit of gold really made this card shine!

Of course, I could not resist using the embossing paste and stencils. I took out Halftone Stencil and applied the new white embossing paste. A note about the paste: it came in the BIGGEST jar of paste that I have ever seen. It was soft and spreadable like butter!  Stay tuned for my upcoming post on using the new paste!

Gorgeous card. I love the beautiful washi tape, and it completely makes this card!

Beautiful card and I love how you turned an oops into a masterpiece. I do love that you can color on the washi tape so I just may have to invest in some of that! Thanks for sharing

Betty McDougal said...

I cannot put into words how much I love this card. You have shared a truly beautiful work of art. Thank you so much.

Anila Dikay said...

So beautiful

Maria Giselle B. said...

I love washi tapes! I seem to can't get enough. I don't have the wide ones yet. Love the effect of the washi tape on parchment paper. Made me think that the washi tape is kraft in color.

Brenda said...

What a beautiful accident!❤❤

Judi said...

Virginia, this card is fabulous. Mistakes are just opportunities to be creative and you certainly were! Such an inventive correction and you would never guess it was not what you had planned all along. I also love the addition of embossing paste. Everything about this project is perfect.

Barbara said...

I love how you colored this Washi tape and created this stunning card. Thank for the tips!

ljcasselman said...

Those inks look so pretty on the parchment paper! And very clever how you glammed up the Hello!

Cynthia Cole said...

Love how you colored the washi tape for your pretty card!

Karthikha said...

Such a beautiful card!! :)

MrsB8T said...

Love the foil look

conil said...

Amazing how you were able to tint the washi. It looks rich, and dramatic. I love the window you created...talk about making lemonade when life gives you lemons...this really works for this card and makes the sentiment pop.

Linda BL said...

I love the muted color effect that you got using the Artist Markers. The bit of gold on the fancy hello die cut adds such a touch of class! You are very skilled at making card mistakes into great cards. I have my pile of ink blotches on card fronts that I can't figure out how to resurrect!

Sathya said...

Beautiful card! The use of gold trim on the sentiment is a pretty clever addition!!

Brenda Kuder said...

Beautiful card! I love the way you used the washi tape and you colored it so nicely!

Seagrass said...

Beautiful card. There was no write up about the background colour so I thought I would read the comments to see if I could figure it out. So many smart women out there! You tinted it! LOL! Love the softness of this card.

Denise Terry said...

I was expecting that washi to be much more opaque than it is. That opens up all sorts of new ideas of how to use it!

Nox said...

Wow - stunning. Thanks for that great tip on how to give that incredible soft tint of colour!

Kelsey Thomas said...

This is beautiful! :)

Jean said...

Simply stunning work highlighting these products!

Dawn J said...

Wow! What a statement by putting the tape on the kraft cardstock, you created a completely different look. I love it!

Kathy said...

Love your soft coloring, Virginia. I am sure I am going to have to experiment with coloring on this washi, but what fun it will be! And this roll is so versatile---I can make it my own. I think the 'mistake' turned out great---love that geo frame! And I had to search for the gold tape, but I found it! Thanks for your ever-inspiring work!

mumster said...

Oh wow--so gorgeous, Virginia! I really love the bit of gold on the sentiment!

Unknown said...

Your use of the washi tape is very pretty, and the gold "hello" is very lovely!

Margaret said...

I love how you used a kraft colored card stock to attache the washi tape which gave it more of an antique background. Thanks for sharing!

Cindy C. said...

It turned out so beautifully. So clever to tint the Washi, it has added personality. :)
