The latest Embellish Challenge (details here ) is up and I was eager to play! The challenge is to Create a card, layout, or altered item using tape and using the color palette showcased in the inspirational graphic above.
Lately I have been playing with Washi tape that Hero Arts Flickr friend Janet sent me. When Janet found out (through the Hero Arts Flickr discussion thread ) that we do not have Target stores here in Canada, she kindly offered to send me some Washi tape! I was THRILLED when the washi tape came in the mail and I have been playing with them since! I made a flower with the Washi tape and stamped the background in Envelope Pattern and Sew Artsy. The flower stems are from Real Flowers.As for the colors of the pearls? I just colored the white ones with copic markers!
I rarely used this sentiment from Type, I believe it may have been the first time. I decided to ink it up with two colors as they help "make the statement"! I did have a lot of fun making this candy-like flower. For some odd reason, I added clear Stickles for the glittery effect after completing the entire card. Sometimes a thought can come out of nowhere like that! I think the little glittery center, buttons and pearls give the card the "oomph" factor!
life is better when you laugh a little! I hope your day is full of love and laughter!
