Washi Color

I’ve had some washi tape stashed away and I think every time I’ve walked into my craft room I’ve looked at it and wondered how in the world I am going to use it!

With this week’s Clean & Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers, I finally found my opportunity!  We were to use a sketch and this is what I came up with:

I rotated the sketch and used washi tape to create some banners.  Bright and cheerful.  I may very well send this to school with one of my DS’s for a teacher.

I promised I’d share the final draft of the baby shower invite I was working on last week, so here it is…

The original design just felt a bit off to me!  I played around with it a bit and decided not to fussy cut the crown, but used a circle frame to keep it from getting lost in the bold patterned strip.  I also changed the placement of the sentiment and crown.  I ended up happy with this redesign and all 42 invitations are now in the mail!

I hope you’re having some decent weather wherever you are!  We dropped from 70 degrees over the weekend to the 30’s today!  Not my idea of pleasant, but I don’t think Mother Nature has comfort levels at the top of her priority list these days!

Have yourself a marvelous Monday!

    Love the bright colours of washi, and how you made the crown stand out (adding white always seems to provide an answer! lol!)

    I love the thank you card! I hear about washi tape all the time…do you have to order it online or get from a craft store?
    Also, your revamp on the baby shower invitation is lovely!
