I've played about eight challenges this week, and no, you haven't seen the cards, because I decided I don't like them. Today I started over, and after I show you the more blog-worthy versions, I may or may not share the icky ones. We'll see.
As most of my three (maybe four) regular readers know by now, I have an embarrassingly large collection of washi tape. You'd think I have a color for everything, but that isn't the case. Much like my former collection of Every Color Ribbon But The One I Need, my washi tape often fails me when I look for specific colors.
So what's a girl to do? I bought the MFT Washi Patterns and More Washi Patterns stamps. Now, if I don't have the right color of washi tape, I can stamp my own. Sweet.
So, I was determined to play the surprisingly-still-current Paper Players color challenge that I blew last weekend:
I also used the current CASology challenge:
to force me to use something new. My NBUS (Never Been Used Schtuff, coined by the lovely Miss Darnell) was my MFT Washi Patterns stamps.
Oh, did you want to see the card? Here you go:
The lovely washi tape isn't. It's stamped, in colors of my choosing. Isn't it great? I stamped the orange (SSS Coral Reef) and tan (HA Wet Cement) onto the white panel, then stamped the blue-green (HA Soft Pool, or maybe Tide Pool) onto a piece of white and trimmed it. It's tough to overlap washi tapes when you're just stamping them, so the blue piece had to be separate for layering. I even went wild and tore the edge of the strip of card stock to make it look more real.
The sentiment was stamped with Hero Arts Wet Cement and the white panel was stuck onto a Pool base. It looked nekkid, so I added a few sequins.
Would you like to see my failed version? Here you go:
It's not horrible, but the washi tape was stamped too long and I think it looks weird. I'm also not happy with my choice of black for the sentiment. I'm just not feeling the love.
I've played a few more challenges, so I'll be back soon. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
ETA: Thank you, Darnell, for reminding me I can also link directly to your NBUS challenge!
