Make your own washi tape with Ann Butler's products

Make your own Washi tape with Ann Butler's products
This is my version for faux washi tape, made with medical paper tape you can buy in every drugstore for a very low cost. So buy one and you can make your own different in colors and patterns tapes in a very simple way.
1. Adhere 6 paper tape strips over some non sticky surface (I used the original one, but any smooth plastic with do the work).Adhere your tapes with spaces: we are going to color them and we don't want them to 
get another color from a strip that was too close

2. Color each strip with different Ann Butler's Crafter's inks using a sponge or any other applicator.
Let the ink dry a lot! I didn't want to dry it with a heat gun as I was not sure about the result to the delicate 
adhesive of those paper tapes.

3. Now, when your strips are dry, re- arrange them close one to another as we want to stamp over a bunch of colored tapes all together. Pick any 2'' Ann Butler's stamp (Unity) and stamp over the colored tapes with this single square as we want it to be " the same tape pattern in 6 colors). Use permanent black ink of any 

4. Now I just made this sample card with diagonal cutting of my stamped faux tapes and some small embellishments around. The circled sentiment was a double die cut and the background was dry embossed with embossing folder. Both embossed panel and the basic card were inked with Aquamarine ink around the edges.
