Nacho Thank You


Sometimes the simplest of designs take the longest to execute. I had an idea for this week's Nacho Average Sketch Challenge and got right to work. Only it didn't turn out like I hoped it would. I think I need some remedial instruction in the use of washi tape. But that's a story for another day. I did finally get a design that I like.

For this card, I started with a 3"x2.75" piece of Whisper White card stock--that's the same size as the wooden block for the "Watercolor Thank You" stamp. I stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral and added some splotches from the "Gorgeous Grunge" stamp set. I mounted this on a piece of Basic Gray. I tried a Crumb Cake panel behind that piece but it just didn't have that zing, so I swapped it out for a Calypso Coral panel that I embossed with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder.

I tried and tried to use a couple of pieces of Epic Day Designer Washi Tape, but I just wasn't feeling it. So I added a piece of Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon and just a little piece of washi tape.
