Washi Tape Background


I'm stopping by with a just for fun card I made last weekend! It's for a2zScrapbooking's Monthly Challenge! The challenge is Anything Goes and you have to use a Hero Art product. This challenge is perfect because I've had some new HA stamps waiting to be used!

I started with Enjoy the Journey stamp set and stamped the bottle, then started stamping my scene with the ship and different elements in the set all inside the bottle. Off to the side, I stamped the cork and the Oh Ship! word bubble.

With my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers I colored the images, I used: AB1, AB3, CR11, EB1, EB2, EB4, EB7, GT1, IG2, MB1, MB2, and Blender. I used IG 2 to shade the sails and the blender to lighten it up a bit. I also used a light blue Spectrum Noir ColourBlend pencil for the back ground. It's super light, I just wanted a hint of color in the sky, but the photo light washed it out!

Next, I fussy cut out the bottle, sentiment, and cork. I added sentiment bubble and cork to the bottle with foam tape.

Then on some tourquoise-y colored card stock, I added a few rows of different Washi Tape, very easy but lots of impact. I picked up this Washi Tape at Micheals it's a cool mermaid theme set! Next, I added the bottle to the card with foam tape and last stamped the I Forgot Your Birthday below the bottle.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
