Not at all wishy-washi !!

Hello all!
           I hope your week is off to a good start and the last day of September brings some sunshine your way!  I'm starting the crafting week off with another page in my little art journal - designed to fit in with the latest challenge over at Stampotique .   The theme is to use washi tape and as I'm a big fan of the stuff, I had to join in with this one but I wanted to do something different to how I usually use it.
                      Using a Janet Klein Stampotique stamp, I stamped her onto some cardstock and then covered her with strips of different washi tapes.  Because the tapes are opaque, you can still see the stamp lines showing so it was fairly easy to fussy cut her afterwards.  I then placed her on a background of blended Distress Inks and acrylic paint, adding some stamped flowers and sentiments, gel pen dots and of course, more washi tape!



             I would also like to enter this into the challenges at Simon Says Stamp Monday , 613 Avenue Creat , Amusing Challenges and Scribble & Scrap.


Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Wow! I was so impressed at the combination of materials and colors and images you used for this! Very creative and it takes a skilled person to make so many seemingly unrelated elements work together beautifully. You truly have an artist's eye and this project was memorable and made me smile. Thank you for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
