Background Techniques - Washi and Tissue Tape

Washi Tape on Shipping Tag
Washi tape is so much fun to use.  It is somewhat transparent and re-stickable.  On the tag above you can see the manila color of the shipping tag.  Below is a picture of the two different colors of cardstock that the Tim Holtz Tissue Tape was placed on for the card background (which is pictured at the bottom of the post.)

Cardstock Colors Before Tissue Tape Was Adhered

The tissue tape is 1/2" wide.  This was the perfect size for a standard size card.  When it was done, I decided that it would be nice to see the light pink of the card base, so I cut the tissue tape background to a 4" x 5 1/4" rectangle.
