washi tape fun!

hello again! it's me! 
i am just sharing a couple cards i made for the Gallery Idol competition!

I have to say, i'm completly intimidated to play along, but i had a few ideas, and i thought, why not? i LOVE washi tape, i LOVE making cards, i LOVE competitions...let's do this! :)

so my first card is really fun! at least i think so! :)

i used washi tape to 'hold' the two pieces of patterned paper together! then i used my sewing machine to stitch on top of the washi! 

those darling little elephants from lawn fawn's love you tons set are just TOO cute! i colored them with copics and then added some white dots for an extra umph of adorable! lol! i created the sentiment with harold's abcs

my next card is a little more CAS! 

i covered some washi on a few white strips of cardstock, then i used a punch to cut the wave shapes! i also added a tiny bit of distressing to the top edges of the waves so they stand out a little bit! 

then i added some super fun, and whimsical star washi to the top at a slant! that little boat and sentiment from float my boat are totally highlighted by the colors of the washi waves and stars! (at least i think so!) 

so those are my two entries! 
i'm not holding my breath though, have you checked out the gallery, they're stunning!!!!!! wow! but i sure LOVE my cards, and had so much fun creating them!



  1. Wow! Way to rock it girl! I love the elephants on vellum and the bright washi against the black is awesome! And how smart to use the washi for the water! These are fabulous!!!
