I'm really not very good with Washi tape. It doesn't help that until recently I only had a couple of rolls of it. I've now acquired half a dozen more, but I just don't seem to have picked up on the craze for it or been inspired at all. So I'm hoping to visit some of the entries in Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge to get some tips when I pop over there with this, as the current challenge is Butterflies + Washi Tape.
I thought I'd aim for strongly contrasting colours of pink and navy, but it all looked a bit harsh when I laid it out on the card, so I snuck in a little yellow by layering yellow die cut butterflies underneath the navy die cuts, and finishing them with yellow gems. Incidentally this butterfly is a great example of how the technology that supports us crafters has changed over the years. When I bought this die, some years ago, I was absolutely blown away by the detail and intricacy of it - it seems pretty tame by comparison with some of the dies we can buy today!
Once everything was in place, it still looked a little unfinished, so I took a navy fine pointed marker and doodled dots along the edges of the Washi tape to echo the dots on the tape. I think that pulled everything together.
