I was deliberate with my color selection, thinking Ombre (I always spell that Hombre first ...), and included the nice grey as a complementary color. I think the grey also keeps it from being too Charlie Brown-ish.
The stamps are from an also-new-to-me stamp set from Technique Tuesdays called Fly Away. I like that the feather is bold and funky and easy to fussy-cut. I colored it with three shades of C Copics.
I screwed up at the end and used the 1/2" side of the Chomper on the top corners when I meant to use the 1/4" on all four corners, then decided I meant to do that and in secret I hope that I've started a new trend. Hey, a girl can dream.
One other note: I'm not sure I like the packaging for these tapes. Lookie:
|Mondo chevron box on the left; mostly new roll of tape on the right.|
I wonder if the chevron-cut tape would even work on a roll like the regular tapes. It might tear more easily, so maybe that's the main reason for the packaging.
Also, I wonder how die-cutting the washi sheets would compare to using the pre-chevroned tapes. I might have to play with that -- after I move and unpack, as I've managed to pack the washi sheets already.
That's it for tonight. Thanks for stopping by!
