Hi all – It is time for another Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp’s challenge. The last couple of days the sun has peeked out for a few hours. Of course there was also snow flurries on Sunday but I will celebrate the few hours of sun that we have gotten. And speaking of celebrating, I used Birthday Josh to make a celebratory card. :D
The challenge this week is to use washi tape. Besides ribbon, I think washi tape is my favorite embellishment to collect. Although I have shown some restraint since I don’t use it as often as ribbon. Heh heh.
I used the a subtle silver grid wash tape in two places: just above the image and again just behind his shoes. It adds a nice texture and matches the glitter on the buckles (hat and belt).
The designer paper is from the Swagger paper pad by Fancy Pants. I used a few brown pearls for additional embellishment and added more texture with the Tim Holtz Alterations – Blueprint embossing folder (Sizzix). And finally, I added stitching around the layers.
