An incredibly easy and effective use of washi tape is to create borders on layers. Like this.
This particular heart tape doesn't line up quite right, so it overlaps slightly and annoys me. But still. I wanted to go with a "lots of love" idea, and the black Staz-on does a better job than any other ink I've used on washi tape. Even so, you can see it's ever so slightly beaded up. (Click the pic to enlarge if needed.)
The second card is more satisfying to me, just because those little obsessive issues with the first aren't an issue. The angled stripes and graphic hearts give a nice sense of movement to the static design, don't you think?
Of all the uses of washi tape, I think this one is my favorite. It's easy. It's clean. It lets you spotlight cool sentiments. For this use alone, I consider my washi tape useful.
