Simple Birthday

Here it is the first Wednesday in June!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week is a Designer's Choice Challenge, and Donna has chosen "Washi Tape".
Now, I have only 2 rolls of washi tape.  One was part of a prize package I won and the second roll is one I bought mostly for taping and holding dies in place.  So, you can see that this one is a bit of a challenge for me!  Luckily, I really do like the pattern and color on the roll I bought and thought it would be fun to try stamping a sentiment on it.  Here's how it turned out:
I didn't have any patterned papers with the same color, but I thought it went well with the bright colors and the patterns of these scraps I have.  I used the smallest square die from the Flip Fancy Die Set to die cut the squares.  Some of the scraps were just barely the right size!  Then I went to work stamping the sentiment.  I masked and selectively stamped the sentiment to get the words side by side instead of top and bottom as they actually are on the stamp.  I stamped the first part of the sentiment with a no-name ink and it immediately beaded up and I remembered that washi tape is kind of slippery surface and so figured I should try Stazon ink.  I stamped, and stamped, and stamped, and . . . and the Stazon just would not stamp the entire word.  Getting slightly frustrated, I decided to try it with some SU! basic black ink and it worked perfectly!  All that wasted time!  But anyway, my idea did finally work and I think the sentiment on the washi is a fun touch.
  Head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team did for this challenge; there are some amazing cards for your inspiration!  I hope you get a chance to play along with us, I'd love some more inspiration on what to do with washi tape; maybe it would even convince me to buy some more. : )

I wonder why the sentiment is partly stamped to your washi. Is your Stazon juicy inked? It might need some reinking. Or maybe a Misti tool can be useful to repeat stamp the sentiment to get a vibrant impression. I've created name labels using this technique. My kids school supplies are personalized with their names stamped on washi. Anyway, thanks for sharing your creation with us @ Incy Wincy Designs Anything Goes Challenge. Good luck!-Maria Giselle
