Crafting When We Can Challenges #114 - Use washi tape - mid way reminder

Just a quick mid challenge reminder for Challenge 114, use washi tape, over at CWWCC.

We have a new sponsor for this challenge, Sarah from

Stampz by Star

We were generously given an image to use for this challenge and I chose Spring Rain. It was a pleasure to colour this image and I tried a few new things too. I've never used washi tape before so I sent out my OH and he came back with 12 rolls of the stuff so I will probably be using it more often now, £2 for 3 rolls from The Works, I didn't think that was a bad price. I revisited a stepper card because I haven't made one for quite a while. It was an easy make using my Hougie board and don't know why I don't make them more. The oval mounts are from my new Tonic mixed ovals, you get straight cut and scalloped, I used my VIP voucher from Create and Craft to get £10 off, another bargain. Stickles have been used in the corners and a sentiment by Vladimir Nabokov, finished off my project. I've used something very new, the washi tape and something very old, stickles on this project and I'm really please with how it's turned out. Just have to wait until the stickles have dried before putting away, I'm so impatient, my fingers are covered in glitter because I keep catching them.

Now hop over to CWWCC and show us how you use washi tape, a couple of our DT have made flowers for their projects.

I completely forgot the challenges that inspired me.
