Weekend Fun

While the men are away the ladies will play!  My DH and DS went fishing in Bishop this weekend, giving my daughters and I some extra free time to visit with friends, watch chick flicks and play.  I decided to re work on a challenge that I was not quite pleased with and a new washi tape technique I just learned.

Here's the inside:

And a close up of the flower:


I'm super pleased because I think these papers just nail them down perfectly, they are from My Minds Eye Indie collection.  I especially love the addition of the flower which was a RAK from a fellow swapper at Your Paper Pantry.  I also like the addition of the grey and silver stamping on the bottom, grey seems to be a nice contrasting neutral to all the warm colors.

The second redo was for the CASE challenge,

The chevrons were my layers, I used a sizzix embossing folder which has chevrons on each strip of paper, cut the v's out and then layers them, since I wanted them to stand out a little without inking them (going for a cleaner look) I chose to add some faux hand stitching.  I'm super pleased with the card and may just have to bestow it to my hubby ;).

  The second card is for a challenge for Cards 365, day 225, is called "tape it," featuring Washi tape
This is fun to use but a bit sticky, LOL!  I made some washi tape flowers from a technique video put out by Lain Ehman's website
I'm not sure if it is still available for purchase but it is filled with lots of great techniques !
Hubby surprised me with some frsh picked flowers upon his return.

Here's a better look at the card:

The tag is colored with Dylusions Color Spray in Fresh Lime.  I used two different washi tapes, the stripe and chevrons.  The flower is made from the tape!  Stamp is Maya Road, little pink flower is from Petaloo.
