Seriously Fab!!



Over at Simon Says Challenge Blog this week they want you to use Washi Tape. I must say Washi Tape has been all the craze lately. I see it everywhere and so much of it, so many different colors and patterns and everyone says it's so fab! Well, I literally have two roles of the stuff. I just never use it, maybe I should use it more but I just don't know what to do with it or how to incorporate it into my work, how weird, because it's all so wonderful!
So anyway, I REALLY wanted to partake in this challenge because it was out of my comfort zone. Since the only washi tape I have it bright green and red circles and the other one is words, I figured I'd use this background that I made out of left over paint from my craft mat. The page was just a mix of red, yellow and blue or turquoise colors. So I put some of that red and green circle washi tape over the page here and there and then made some embossed Wendi Vecchi flowers from craft colored card stock (if you look closely you can see the pattern in the flowers backgrounds) and then added some Stampotique characters. (love those) I drew the stems on the flowers and pumpkins and added the word washi tape across the top.  I also painted the bottom rolling ground.
I must say, I think it's a fab page. I kinda like it. 



Now I must go over to Simon's Challenge blog and see what everyone else did with their washi tape challenge because I need some ideas!!
