Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs - Tape

Greetings! This week's Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs is to use tape on your project.
I used Tim Holtz Tissue Tape to create the bird on my card. I stuck the tissue tape on patterned paper and then die cut the bird with a Spellbinder's Die.
 All of the product I used is from my scrap bin so I don't know who the manufacturer's are. However, I do know that the pretty floral paper was cut from the cover of a program from a wedding I attended.
Here is a comparison so you can see the pretty difference the tissue tape makes.
The top portion is just the plain patterned paper.
The second section shows a stamped sample. Certainly I could have stamped the paper before die cutting it and that would have been pretty.
The bottom sample has the Tissue Tape on it. See what a subtle muted effect the tape makes on the patterned paper and then the design of the tape on top of that? So really you get three layers instead of two - and more layers is almost always better!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! 
I appreciate your comments!
I hope you are inspired to make a project using tape - it can be washi tape, masking tape, tissue tape, homemade tape - whatever you like! Be sure to link it up at Frosted Designs for a chance to win a prize and/or be chosen as a top three!
