Fun with washi tape

The Butterfly Challenge this go-round is to use washi tape (and a butterfly, of course). To make this, I put a bunch of washi strips down (in rainbow order), die cut a circle, then die cut the butterfly out of that. I mounted it on white paper, then added the other elements.  My first plan was to use the butterfly I cut out , but it was too big and busy, so I used a smaller butterfly and covered it with purple glitter.

The layout for this is the current Sketch Saturday, #372.

The large butterfly is a Simon Says die, the smaller is actually from a punch. The sentiment (white empossed) is from an old Stampin Up set.

I'm entering these challenges:
Butterfly Challenge #36 -- washi tape
Sketch Saturday #372
Clear it Out -- anything goes (clearing out some glitter and washi tape)
World Art Wednesday #194 -- anything goes.


  1. Beautiful washi tape background. Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday, on our 194th challenge.
    Blessings and Hugs, Carole

  2. Oh gosh...this is so pretty! Definitely gonna have to try that myself now that I've seen it! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Sketch Saturday!

  3. So beautiful! This is fantastic! Thanks for sharing at Clear It Out's Anything Goes challenge. Lisa DT

  4. That is a neat way to do up washi tape. Having a large butterfly cutout really zings it up.

  5. Hi Sandy,
    Was just checking through the comments on my current butterfly challenge(looking for those playing for fun) and couldn't remember seeing a thumbnail picture of your card. Have checked through the backdrop of Mr Linky and cannot see a failed link up fom you. Please try linking up again as your card is lovely. Hugs MrsA.

  6. So glad you linked up. I love your

  7. Oops pressed wrong button, I love your double die cut on the wash tape card. Great idea and the colours together are really pretty. Thankyou for fluttering by. Hugs Mrs A.

  8. Such a clever way to use the washi tape on this card! I like this idea - I have a collection (okay, hoard!) of washi tape and this is a great way to use a lot of it at once! Fantastic die cutting of the butterflies! Thank you for joining Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
