Thank you with Washi tape feathers

I wasn't sure if I could do this washi tape challenge as I have the tape but have found each time I use it I don't like what I see and remove it. That is till my latest purchase, I had always bought bright colours, dots and stripes and honestly I have been using for holding dies in place and when I want to do some blending.
My latest purchases were one of those whim things where I had seen some washi on someones card and decided I would use it. One search of course led to many and as you all know and I am sure many do the same 'wow $1 or $2 each roll no postage of course I have to get more than just one'. Now I have a nice collection I am sure I will use..... gold looks so nice in different patterns.

Gold and white/pink stripes with an ombre effect, mmmm mmm. Just placed the tape along a piece of thin card stock then used my feathers dies to cut some shapes. Then I used a scrap of white card stock and decided where I wanted the feathers to be and cut again.

I die cut with the stitched rectangle die a nice piece of pink scrap that the white piece would fit in and then just attached to a white card base. Procrastinated as usual over the sentiment and then came across this pretty 'thank you' Penny Back word die that had been cut from a piece of Inktense coloured watercolour paper and it just worked perfectly. Finished  of with a wee pink gem. 

I am totally happy with the end result and now I need to go see what else can be covered in washi tape. I cant believe this, Jake heard me humming and it must be my mad person hum cause he's gone into hiding. Silly dog, as thought I would washi tape him.

Okay thank you very much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

That is nice Washi tape. I have a few rolls, but am still not entirely sure how to use them - this is a very nice idea to use it for covering dies with. Love the pink frame too. Xx

WOW!! Aileen, this card is gorgeous. I love the gold shimmer of those feathers, this is one amazing washi tape.
I'm skipping this challenge since I don't have any washi tape but you just gave me some amazing ideas and I think I'm going to go look for some of this tape tomorrow.
I did the inlaid challenge, that's how I saw your card.
Simply amazing, my friend.
Thank you for sharing.
