Cork It! - Copic Must Haves

I love cork paper and Imagination International took it to the next level with Cork Deco Tape.  I used this 1" wide Cork Tape and my Fence Border Die to create this scene using stamps and dies from Crafting' Desert Divas (one of our amazing Copic Boot Camp sponsors). 

I used a bit of glossy paper and used alcohol ink to create the sky.  Using a second piece of glossy paper I airbrushed some random green colors and ran it though my die cut machine using Craftin' Desert Divas Fall Border die.  This die comes with hilly trees, hilly houses and a another fun hilly stitched border.  Once I had it all cut out I stamped on Hammermill paper the cute little Barnyard animals from Crafting' Desert Divas.  These little 1" cuties are a quick color.  I cut out some of the cows and placed them on the hillside.  Using the fence die I placed it over a strip of the Cork Deco Tape and ran it through the die cut machine.  The deco tape has a protected adhesive on one side of the cork so it works nice in a die cut machine without making a mess.  You just peel and stick on your project.  The Cork tape can easily be colored on using Copics (can you see I added a fence shadow with a brown marker?), I also wanted to add a complimenting banner using the cork paper.  Using Versafine ink I stamped the sentiment from an old sentiment set from Stampendous (SSC1203), that went with it perfectly. 



I love how sturdy the Cork Deco tape is.  The roll of Cork Deco Tape comes with 1 yard total to play with.  I am looking forward to my next project because the possibilities of stamping and coloring on it are great ;)  I think it would be perfect for a woodland scene.  The Cork Deco Tape is available now.  What are some ideas you can come up with using Cork Deco Tape?  What kind of crafty goodness will you use it for?

What a great scene! I think it may be cool to try to white wash the cork fence. I don't know how it would look but I imagine it would be a cool look.
