There are a great variety of tissue/washi tapes on the market now. And many are creating there own faux tissue or washi tape. I decided to experiment and take my results to stamp club last night. The top strip is white florist tape, the middle is paper first aid tape and the bottom is white tissue paper run through a Xyron adhesive machine. I used the same stamp and permanent ink on all three. The tissue paper had the most vivid color. The florist tape, besides not being as adhesive as tape, stretched while being handled. It could be used with adhesive.
The advantage of making your own tapes, is you can create your own themes and match colors with the inks you have.
