Try something new at lasting memories

This weeks challenge at lasting memories is to try something new. 
 I know I'm late to the washi party, but I finally got hooked and am on a roll.  Actually 16 rolls so far.  I picked up a half dozen or so at a cute little scrap book store in Lincoln City, Oregon.  A couple of the ladies I went to retreat with had never seen washi or mist before, so I guess I'm not that much of a late comer. 
So now on to my first ever layout using washi tape
I used the tape to create the background on my  plain white card stock

I cut the cup from gypsy wanderings.  The pattern coming through the swirl on the cup is more washi tape lined up so the dot pattern matched.  Popped the whole cup up of the page with foam dots
So what have you tried that's new?
Why don't you show us at lasting memories this week

Some of the DT sisters at lasting memories are also doing a 50 layout challenge in which we are busting stash.  Most of us have restricted our purchases of crafty stuff until we hit the 50 mark.  We're also encouraging each other and checking in weekly to keep motivated.

This is #2 of 50
My only other washi venture was this card I made for my husbands birthday

I layered the tape on top of a white piece of card stock then used the happy birthday folder and ran it through my cuttle bug.  Clear Happy sticker. Cake die cut recycled from a card plus some numbers cut on the cricut and a few stickers.
