It all started with an idea to use some of my washi tape collection. Here's one of the cards, then I'll explain:
Kristina Werner's videos: After I was done applying and trimming the tapes, some of the tinier pieces weren't sticking so well - being tape-to-tape and all - so I painted on a thin layer of Claudine Hellmuth Matte Multi-Medium to kindof glue it all down and make it stay put. This also took off some of the sheen in case I wanted to stamp on it later.
For this one, I stamped the girl with attitude from Stampotique onto a scrap of Naturals White, and then edged the piece with more of the green washi tape. I colored her with Copics, then decided to paper piece her dress. (When you see my failed card, you'll understand why.) Again, I took some washi tape - the dotted one this time - and applied a few rows to a scrap, then coated it with matte multi-medium and let it dry. I stamped her dress and cut it out, then glued it to the larger image. I like how that came out.
I needed a backing for the sentiment, so I added another piece of the green washi tape, then cut up the sentiment and popped it up over the tape with tiny dimensional adhesive squares. I actually don't mind this one, although it's pretty hefty.
Okay, here's the first one I made:
World UFO Day. The fact that a web site dedicated to the celebration actually exists indicates I'm probably not making this up.
Well, in our discussion, I explained to him that UFO in crafting has a different meaning entirely, and this card started to take shape in my mind. I would use UFOs from my desk and incorporate the alien sentiment, and it would be perfect. Too bad I
I mean, it's bad enough I suk at coloring, but I attached the sentiment with brads, which I now regret. I also covered her boots with Glossy Accents, but you can't tell from the photo. And there was that whole right quadrant that was making me stabby, so I needed something to hide more of it. You see what happened -- flowers happened. No, I don't know what I was thinking.
So, yeah, two cards, tons of washi tape, and six days. Not a good week in my world.
I did, however, just crank out a card for next week's SOS challenge. You need to come back and see that one on Tuesday. And you just never know, I might have the energy to make another card before then. Could happen.
Thanks for stopping by!
