I haven't stamped for a week, and I was feeling withdrawal pains, so I took my most recent list of challenges into the craft room. Then this happened:

I combined the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch:

with the now-expired City Crafter Challenge to use washi tape.

I broke out my stack of My Mind's Eye Coral & Aqua washi tape, and used the bold chevron as my main vertical piece. I added the skinny piece of aqua because the chevron looked lonely.

For the horizontal element, I used another piece of skinny coral tape with arrows. For the circle element, I stretched it a bit because I wanted to use a sentiment from my Paper Smooches Uplifters set. It was pretty wide, and I didn't want a circle that large, so I just partially cut it with a stitched circle die and lined it up on the arrow washi tape.

I kind of like how this one turned out. :) Only 345,654 miles of washi tape to go!

Thanks for stopping by!
