Art Journey Challenge #2 - Tape

How time flies,




... October already (white rabbits white rabbits, pinch punch first of the month no returns etc) and its the second challenge for Art Journey over on the Art Journey Design Team blog. This month it's hosted by Godelieve who has chosen the theme of TAPE for to use in the challenge along with mainly Art Journey Stamps.



There are various ways in which you can incorporate the use of tape into your artwork and so after much deliberation I decided to use 3M Magic tape as a mask to deorate this tag pocket/holder on the front of this card and then simply peeled it off once I'd blended inks etc over the areas I needed.

Stamps used are all Art Journey by Sija, the sea horse being from one of the recent releases, Art Journey SEA ,available direct from the Art Journey store in Sleen, Holland and the Art Journey website.

Ooooooooooooh, she swooned! I have such a thing for seahorses (actually contemplating a tatoo of one). This is just gorgeous. Love the soft colours. Another perfect project hun! Jo x (If I don't go for a sea horse it might be a tiny gecko instead!)

Absolutely gorgeous - I love it and what a great use of the tape.

I usually do my blog hopping late at night but for a while now I have left comments and then it goes wrong. So I am trying earlier.

Didn't want you think that I haven't been visiting

Nice story you got here. I'd like to read a bit more concerning that matter. The only thing it would also be great to see on this blog is a few pics of some gadgets.
