gelli plate washi tape

Morning All:  Yesterday as I was cleaning up from my play, I decided to do one last play and pulled out my paper tape that I get at the dollar store to do a couple of test pulls, I was delighted.  I layed strips of the tape to a sheet of card stock for the pull.  Now, if you are doing this you do not want to let the washi tape completely dry on the card stock, the tape is porous and will stick itself to the cardstock, so when it was partially dry, I removed it and laid it down on a piece of transparency, great holder for the tape, you can punch holes on the left side of the transparency and store in a binder until you are ready to use it.  I love how it turned out.  I also realized yesterday that I have 1/2 a dozen or so of the fiskars texture plates, I have almost thrown them out a couple of times, LOL, what was I thinking?  They are pretty great with the gelli plate.  This is a great way to coordinate with your fantastic gelli pull backgrounds, happy Tuesday, hugs

This looks beautiful Sandi. Any reason you can't start on a transparency and stay there? ~Diane

What a great idea! Why didn't you do the tape on the transparency for the gelli pull?

the gelli plate is so slippery, I did not want to risk it moving and smearing is the reason I did not pull off the transparency, hugs
