Glisten Bean Washi Tape Shaker Card

Hola!
This is my second post today.  Please scroll down to see my Y&FH "Shape for Mother's Day" post.

This morning I was in a rush to finish this card for the current FFF - Monochromatic over at The Greeting Farm.  I had my image stamped but needed to figure out what I wanted to do with it.  I thought creating another washi tape shaker card would go wonderfully with this image.  I think the washi tape might have tipped me over in to choosing the colors I wanted to use, then I checked the samples from the design team and I really got inspired by Rosie's card.  I hadn't done a black and white card in a long time so thought I would give it a go.


Here's my version of a black and white washi tape shaker card.  [HAHAHA!!  I just noticed that you can see some of my reflection in her hair!]  Anyhoos here is the card and the washi tape is the black and bigger white polka dots (K&Co).  For a fun and easy tutorial check out this post.  I think I might have put in a bit too much extras which include the fun little accents on the stamp.  I stamped, colored, and fussy cut them out. Added some clear beads and punched some small clouds.  After closing the top part I mounted it on to a white piece of cardstock, then on to the polka dot dp and then on to the black cardstock.  Added the black and white bakers twine to tie it all together.


Whew, I was able to upload this to the FFF over at The Greeting Farm early this morning before it closed.  Thirty minutes to spare!  Yay!  Well had I not gotten in, I still would have posted this here.  It's pretty darn cute.  Would also like to submit this to a new challenge I was recently introduced to, Card Makin' Mamas.  Their challenge is to use Washi tape, which was perfect for my card.   Definitely looking forward to makin' more of these easy/fun cards and getting my washi tape stash up!  Thanks for stopping by!!  Enjoy the rest of your day!!

I thought something was wrong with my computer image and the color of your card had disappeared. LOL! All of your cards are usually so colorful. This was a great change and made the details more noticeable. Great use of washi tape! Thank you for your sweet comments to my blog.
