Washi Woes

Morning all,

Less is More has a Washi tape theme this week. I have a love/hate relationship with washi tape - all those rolls hanging up at the shops look so pretty and cry out for me to buy them. But then I get home and there they sit gathering dust until a challenge like this one comes along:

 I layered the washi on some strips of card and die cut them using the dies from PTI's Lovely Layers. The sentiment is from the matching stamp set.  It looked a bit bare so I stencilled a background with some gesso to add a bit of texture. 

I'm also entering this into the AAA Card Challenge where the theme is die cuts.

Hope you get the time to join in with a few challenges this weekend! Thanks for stopping,

  1. Brilliant!! Love this idea Claire and your card is so pretty!!

  2. This is a really elegant design. I love how it's got a formal layout but softened by the patterns and warm colours - fabulous! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  3. So crisp and clean and a beautiful showcase of your washi tapes. Fantastic die-cuts too oand it's great to see you join us at both AAA Cards and Less is More this week. x

  4. What a magnificent card Claire. A really imaginative use of the gorgeous washi tapes on a classy and visually striking design. Those colours really have a wow factor against the subtle honeycomb background. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

  5. So pretty, Claire ... those fabulous colours really pop against the white ... and that touch of texture is delicious! Hugs, Anita :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
