See, I told you I was in a card-making mood yesterday, but this creation to a bit more time than the shamrock I posted earlier. When I first saw the Operation Write Home (OWH) sketch challenge, I was a bit perplexed, but I quickly went to my newest washi tape clearance purchase for inspiration. I was so excited to use this butterfly tape only a few days after purchase (that rarely happens), which quickly led me to two stamps I had yet to use and an unopened 6×6 paper pack — The Sweetest Thing by My Mind’s Eye.
I stuck the washi tape onto plain white paper and trimmed it, then folded it back and forth to create pleats. Then I used my huge butterfly stamp to create the large image and added accents with my Spectrum Noir pens, dots of red Stickles and a few squirts of Glimmer Mist. After inking everything for that all-popular punch and sticking it all down, I made a zigzag stitch with my sewing machine for a bit more detail and dimension.
The pleats are a great interpretation of the banners.

Thanks, Linda, and thanks for stopping by for a look.
This is such a creative interpretation of the sketch — and a wonderful way to use washi tape. I have a few rolls, but never know how to use it. Might just have to give this a try. Thanks so much for joining our OWH Sketch Challenge.

So glad you like the washi, Sybrina. I have rolls and rolls of the stuff and never quite know how to use it either, so I’m also always looking for inspiration.

This card is fantastic! Love that large butterfly image, and how you pleated the washi tape. Great job using the new supplies. 🙂 Tfs!
