One of the challenges I pulled out this weekend was from Inspired By:

LOVE this. So today I went in search of ... you guessed it: washi tape. And you know what? I have not. one. roll. of blue with white dots that isn't baby blue. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?! Sigh. So then I was on a mission to find something, ANYthing, blue with white dots.

When I started rummaging through my pack of washi sheets (you can cut that, you know) I found a yellow polka dot sheet and a blue & white striped sheet. Pretty much the opposite I was going for, but I decided to try it.

This is what came out, then I'll explain:

In my own defense, I had every intention of using ONLY the yellow and blue pieces, but ... because of a failed previous effort to use that washi sheet on a different project, I'd cut the blue piece so it was too short for a second strip across the white panel. FAIL. I had to go to Plan B, and that was to add a third color.

If this disqualifies me from the Inspired By challenge, I'm okay with that because I was inspired by the photo, and I kinda like the splash of red on there.

The teeny tiny stars are from an old package of A Muse bling. I had to color the blue ones with a Copic marker to darken it a bit. It was baby blue. (What, are people no longer making royal blue or navy blue bling? Pffth.)

Well, that was tougher than I thought it would be. I might need a margarita.

Thanks for stopping by!
