washi skyline

Hiya, all! =) Here is a card that I made for Paper Crafts November Gallery Challenge.


This month's challenge is "All About Decorative Tape" and for my love of Japanese washi tape, I'll have to give this challenge a try! =) I covered a piece of cardstock with various washi tapes then die cut the piece with My Favorite Things Solid Skyline die.


I stamped Hero Arts Starry Sky in black on the Smokey Shadow cardstock rectangle and added Diamond Stickles to the larger stars on the background for a little sparkle. The sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday set is stamped with Encore! Ultimate Metallic Gold ink. Also in the photo are the washi tapes that I used for the skyline die cut.

That's it for now. I think the deadline of the gallery challenge is Monday, so there is still time to submit! =)


Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

FINALLY, this is the first time I think I've looked at washi tape and thought, okay, now that's worth getting! Otherwise, I just couldn't figure out how different it is from strips of paper. lol. This is helpful!!!
