Hello friends!! Happy weekend to you! Boy is it GORGEOUS here in Western Washington! Just checked the forecast and it says temps will be in the 90's by evening!! Yikes... a bit too hot for me, but going to enjoy it just the same! Have a little card I made last night, but didn't get a chance to post until this morning. As the title of my post indicates this is for the current Less is More challenge to use blue and green. But what is the trend I'm trying out? Washi tape!! I have resisted it for a while now because it is just one of those things that I like when I see other people use it, but when I give it a try my results always appear less than stellar. Anywhoo... I decided to be brave and give it a try!
For my layout I used the current Retro Sketch. I pulled out a favorite Hero Arts set, Antique Flowers & Butterflies because it has a little butterfly perfect for the little grouping you see on the sketch and because it comes with matching dies! But much to my dismay I discovered that the die for the little butterfly is missing!! Ugghh!! So instead of die cutting all the butterflies I had to cut them out! Oh well... they still look pretty. The Washi tape I acquired during my last shopping trip to Impress Rubber Stamps. I think my biggest problem with Washi tape is the two rolls I had I did not buy and sometimes when I have a paper crafting item that I did not buy it is hard for me to use because it isn't necessarily something I would have picked out. I did a bit of fiddling with the tape to get the look I wanted and so I'm relatively happy with it and may purchase another roll this week when I go to Impress to pick up some dies I had on order. My card would also work for CAS-ual Fridays, but not sure if I will include it in their challenge. The current challenge at A Blog Named Hero is freestyle... anything goes so I will pop it into that challenge.
Thanks for stopping by....
