This week's theme at Less Is More is Washi Tape. You can either use some you've bought or improvise. I've seen people make it before with surgical tape and wanted to have a go. I had some lovely fresco chalk finish paints to play with from PaperArtsy, and I'm experimenting with the different types (opaque, semi-opaque and translucent.)
I had a scraggy bit of micropore tape, so I stuck it to my cutting mat
and sponged on the translucent blood orange. I then stamped the opaque sky blue,
using this swirl stamp (one of my favourites from PaperArtsy)
and then did the same with this splatter (another fave).
Then I stamped this script (yet another fave) in black ink.
I used this to make a card using another PaperArtsy stamp (all of the stamps I have used have been from the hotpicks sets) and the splatter again. I stamped the flower under the tape, but the splatters over it.
I'm quite pleased with how this turned out. I'll definitely be trying it again.
I am happily married with two wonderful sons. I work full-time as a radiographer. I like to make stuff. Cardmaking, knitting, crochet. I'll try anything crafty.I also have an unhealthy love of maths: I did a degree for fun.
I post on my blog in the hope that I will inspire others to create. I am more than happy for you to be inspired by anything I post, and make it your own. Likewise, I get inspiration from all sorts of sources including the blogs of other crafters, although I would never knowingly directly copy another's work I visit so many blogs I pick up inspiration all over the place. Please know that if you are in my blog lists then you inspire me.
