A challenge on lets scrap was to make a card using yellow and white not one of my favourite colour combinations but am quite pleased how this came out, the card stock was from my stash.... the dress form was cut from a Tim Holtz die..... i used an EK success punch to make the layers on the dress and a crinkled edge of a doilley to make the petticoat......the tissue flower i made from some tissue paper that i had from an Easter gift (no i am not a hoarder as hubby likes to say) thanks for looking

Washi Tape
I have seen several tutorials making this and thought would share to those who have'nt and put my step by step instructions i did this for some fellow crafters a few weeks ago then saw it again so decided to put on my blog..........this is what i used an ink pad , small stamps,  acrylic block you need a non stick mat or some non stick baking sheet (not greaseproof paper ) or you can use a clear plastic bag

This is the tape i used it comes in various sizes i also used some masking tape you can get from any DIY store in lots sizes, handy if you want to cover a project with washi tape and distress with inks

below is the tape stamped on a clear bag
this is the tape placed on some card you can also use this tape to make embellishments
I made this by using a card circle and gradually pleating the tape around in layers
i covered a button also with the tape and added some bakers twine
here is a closer look
There is loads tutorials how to do this ,hope you like my version
