Wannabe Washi Tape

Wannabe Washi Tape by Renee Day

Hello there, it's Renee Day with thediyday here to share a fun wannabe washi tape do-it-yourself. Washi tape is such a fun tool to have in your arsenal and can be used in many craft projects. However,  sometimes colors and designs are needed and not readily available. That's where this DIY comes in handy.  

For this particular project I used file folder labels.  But if you're using acrylic paints this technique will work on masking tape (oxide inks smear on masking tape).  Just be sure to adhere the tape to wax paper before designing for easy removal.

After randomly stamping some texture designs onto the labels, add various colors to the top with oxide inks.  Be sure the stamp ink you're using waterproof, otherwise it will eventually smear and cause a big mess, I'm using Ranger Archival Ink.

Add a stencil to the top of colorful labels and spray with water to activate the oxides. I'm using the Pebbles Layer Me Stencil (L368) and the result is a milky chalky look in the design of the stencil.

Add additional stamping to the labels.  This gives the background a bit more noise.

Next, I grabbed the Fade Horizontal Stencil (L027) and a light grey ink pad and added various sized circles to the labels.

The last stencil I'm using is the Soulful Scribbles Dots Dash (L605).  I applied this right on top using black acrylic paint and a stencil brush.

Here's how the wannabe washi tape turned out.  Tear off a small piece from both edges of the label to give that torn off the washi tape roll look.
