This weeks challenge at iSpy is one of my favourite so far.  When Kim set the challenge for the DT she also mentioned it would e a great one for washi tape. Mmmmmm that got me thinking and playing!  I have not used washi tape before and now that I have I am hooked!  It is so versatile, quick and easy to use and adds another dimension to your creative project.

So the sketch at iSpy this week features Joanne Basile (basilefamily @ SCS) and is based on this card

Here is the sketch:

and this is the card I created:
I decided to allow the circular doily element to overhang the side of the card a little, use some banners and try and incorporate washi tape in a few different ways.
The first thing I did with the washi tape was create  quick and easy panels at the top of the card and on the centre of the doily.  Then I layered up some strips of washi tape on some cream card and die cut my banners and rolled rose from them.  Then from the scraps I grabbed my favourite butterfly punch and created some two toned butterflies to layer up on the tag. Finally i grabbed a little mini peg and covered that with the tape.
Materials Used:
Paper - Echo Park Country Drive, cream cardstock
Dies - MFT die - namics Dainty Doily Medium, First Place Award Ribbon (fishtail banners) and Mini Rolled Rose
Other -  MME The Sweetest Thing Decorative Lavender "Reason's Why" washi tape, Punch Bunch medium leaf punch, MS Glasenne Butterfly punch, Birch organza ribbon, mini peg, TH Tea Dye distress ink, Kaisercraft pearls and  BBP rub on.
