Spots and Stripes

I made this card for the Paper Crafting Journey Spots and/or Stripes challenge.  I've really embraced the theme by using stripes of spots and stripy spots! 

I started by laying stripes of spotty washi tape onto A6 card. Then I trimmed about 0.5cm (maybe slightly less) from each side.  I then embossed it with an embossing folder (Tim Holtz Texture Fades Retro Circles) and went over the raised surface with a white ink pad, and covered that with clear embossing powder to give a nice glaze.  Finally I cut the card into quarters and attached it to the backing card.  The whole thing is finished off with a simple, stamped sentiment.  I added the organza bow as the sentiment on its own seemed a bit bleak.

  2. Hi Merry. Thank you for commenting on my post. I love the technique you have used on your card... such a clever way to give added texture to washi tape. Thanks for sharing how you did it...something I'll give a go. Cheers, Di
