Make Your Heart Sing

There's a challenge over at Inspired by Stamping that simply asks us to use Washi tape.  So I just pulled out some reds and blacks and played a bit.  Here's the result:

April IBS Washi Tape

These are assorted tapes; I don't have the slightest idea who makes what, but I do know that the red houndstooth is an We R Memory Keepers Washi paper - love this idea, as you can cut off any width you'd like for each project.  After I'd positioned the tapes as I liked, I stamped my greeting (Penny Black Eloquence), ran my panel through a new Cuttlebug embossing folder, Cross My Heart, then attached it to a red card base, and added some Maya Road gingham blossoms and some black and red pearls.  

Looks like I'm the first to enter this challenge - since the winners will be a random draw, I guess I'd better go do another of these!

I'd also like to enter this into the Die-Cut Diva's April challenge, to use Washi tape.  Thanks to Dawn for pointing me there!

Thanks for visiting!

  2. I love the red and black combination. I am getting a little obsessed with washi tape, too, although I have yet to use it on a card. So far, I am just collecting it!

  11. Love the black and white color scheme and the wonderfully embossed panel with Washi tape making music on a bed of hearts.

    So glad you could play with us at the Die Cut Divas' challenge - use Washi tape or make a birthday card.
