City Crafter 251

Hello everyone

My fellow DT member and dear friend Stella is hosting the challenge today at City Crafter and she has challenged us to create a card or project that features Washi Tape


I am also delighted to say that our Guest Designer is the lovely Darnell Knauss ... Many of you will know Darnell for her lovely creations, her NBUS challenges, her generosity, her witty and uplifting posts and not least of all for her fine use of invented words lol! If you have never visited Darnell's blog you don't know what you are missing ... click the link and see for yourself

So here's my card


I made it for my SIL who celebrated her birthday last month ... The tag features 2 different dottie Washi Tapes overlaid with vellum


The tulips (stamps by Clearly Besotted) were painted with Gelatos and I dusted off my Swiss embossing folder for this one


Like Darnell this week's winner will also have a GD spot with us so pull out those forgotten about Washi tapes and get creating ... Our team have lots more inspiration for you up on the City Crafter Blog, so take a minute to have a look ...

Wishing you all a wonderful day

Be safe

I'm stunned by this, Ros! It's a gorgeous confection. Almost like tulips blooming in the snow. I don't know, I'm not a poet, but let me just say that your creation IS poetry to me!!

Clearly Besotted should add you to their DT. You work magic with their stamps and your coloring with Gelatos is gorgeous. As a Dutch girl I LOVE tulips:) And a brilliant way to use washi tape. Love the vellum overlay too. Your SIL should frame this:)
Thinking of you..

I really like how you wrapped the tag with washi tape. Vellum is always a plus and that cute burlap butterfly is so sweet. It adds a bit of whimsy. Beautiful work!
