Washi Tape and Hanukkah
Here is my entry for the second KIS challenge - this time it is Washi tape. I putzed around with it two days ago, but was not happy with the result. You can find it under this entry. This card I like so much better, so in the challenge it goes. I saw a similar card in the past which inspired me to make this - I wish I'd remember who did it, to give credit, but I don't. The splatters I did with a wet paintbrush and distress inks and just flicked them onto the paper. Somehow it really stains your fingers..... The sentiment and flourish is from Hero Arts, the little orange splatter in the left bottom corner is from Papertrey. I put glossy accents on it, but it does not show on the photo.
In the afternoon I surprisingly had more time and played around with a Hanukkah card. First I though it does not need a sentiment, but then I changed my mind. The candles are just colored paper. The flame I made from a left over piece of rubber and the small circles are Hero Arts. The bigger one I sponged from a mask made with a 1 1/2 inch paper punch. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession.
