Artisan Tape, Washi Tape, or Japanese Tape??

I love the look of the latest Washi Tape or Japanese tapes that are being used on cards these days.  I bought a roll of 'Artisan Tape' by Pink Paislee.  I'm not 100% sure if this is the same as Washi Tape or not but it is fun to work with.  One think I really like is that it can be taken back up once it is down on the paper.  That is really good for me because I make mistakes all the time!! 

I don't 'do' this flowery collage-y style very often.  I find it rather hard to do and this card took me FOREVER to finish!!  I'm not sure if I like the end results or not!  Feel free to give me some feedback and kind criticism so I can continue to grow creatively. 

Thanks!

I absolutely love how you've used the tapes! I've seen them on many posts but they're just a scrap here or a tear there. But you've taken these tapes to a whole new level..I love the pattern..and the flowers certainly complement the tapes!

A card well done!
Hugs, Tejal

Collage-y tends to defeat me usually, too -- but not you on this card! I think it's quite lovely. I too like the way you've used the tape as a focal element rather than a random scrap. :)

What an awesome effect with this tape, Donelda! And I love your flower garden, too -- we must both be in floral mode this week!!

Donelda, your card is awesome. I like how you used the tape (I´ve never tried it) and how you put the flowers around. It looks so elegant. Very beautiful card !!

Beautiful and elegant card. I think you did an amazing job with the flowers. The colors go so well together. Feels like a nice bouquet. Awesome.
