A Tiny Washi

So I spent hours yesterday playing with ink and paint trying to make my own washi tape with tissue paper. After spending all that time this is what my results were. It's easy to stamp and paint the tissue paper, but attaching it was my downfall. I ruined almost every piece I made because I kept tearing it. Then it hit me, duh, put your adhesive on the cardstock first, then lay the tissue on top. No more tearing! Anyway, these two tapes were both stamped with Stampin' Up! dye inks, and Unity stamps. This card is a mere 3"x3" because I am playing along with the Moxie Fab World's 75 Creative Card Challenges, to make an itty bitty card.
And this card also happens to fit the theme at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, which is to use washi tape! Thank you for stopping in, and for your comments!
