Getting Crafty In Singapore - #2

Back again with one of those "WOW" finds from Singapore.
I read an article about Washi Tape on the plane. (The link is a v v brief description for those who have also never heard of it!!) I had never heard of it but I was intrigued by it's versatility. So....Bestie and I invested in a roll each and decided to have a play. She went for something bold and bright...I went for v v basic...LOL!!! The article I read gave 10 ways to use the tape, one was by using it as a frame. These are the 2 cars I have gone with so far....
and #2...
As the pattern on the Washi Tape was so bold, I wanted to let it be the feature...and I also love the impact of white, black and red. I also have to add sentiments to these cards too of course. I have nearly completed the cards I did with Bestie's Washi Tape, but they still need something to finish them off....just can't decide what yet!!

Hope you likes these cards too. My next crafty Singapore post will involve Bestie's kids. Thanks for popping by.

Stuff Used:
CS: CM red and a White CS fm Bestie's stash.
Ink: (SU) Basic Black SWM
Stamps: (SU) Pocket Silhouettes
Other Bits: Japanese Washi Tape

Love the way you've used your Washi Tape. It looks great framing the PS images. Nice job.
