Hereis the challenge:
Here is what I came up with:
I started with my background which is simple navy blue cardstock that I embossed with an embossing folder then spritzed it with Perfect Pearls. I then used a circle die to cut my "window". I stamped the flag image on the insdide of the card with VersaMark Ink and used Black Sparkel embossing powder.
I had stopped at Michael's yesterday and bought some Michael's brand Washi tape. They call it Craft tape. It was on sale so I thought it was a good time to try it out. Also they had it in red, white and blue and I knew I was going to be making 4th of July cards for the troops. So I pulled the tape out and picked out the red & white striped tape. After I had put the tape on my card I realized the embossing showed through the tape. I should have put the tape on cardstock before I adhered it to my card. I also meant to put a red border around the opening of the window but forgot.
I decided to make another card the way I had intended to. Here it is with the red frame around the window:
Hope everyone is having a creative week.
