And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Just Tape It!

Hello friends…happy Friday!  

Is there a day that goes by that you don't use some kind of tape…packing tape, scotch tape, duct tape, masking tape…oh, and don't forget that washi tape?  I have two cards using two different kinds of tape to share with you today.

Creative Nugget:  Where's the tape on this card?  The distress inks (Fossilized Amber, Orange Marmalade, Abandoned Coral, Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean, and Tumbled Glass) were applied with masking tape.  Water was dropped on the horizon so the blues would blend and drip down the card front. The image and the sentiment come from one of my favorite stamp sets by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps…The Sea.

Now for a little bit of washi tape!
Creative Nugget:  Washi tape was applied on the diagonal for the side panel.  The hearts from the Grunge Elements 2 stamp set were clear embossed and Color Burst powders were spritzed with water to create the background.  There's Cocoa popping out to send a little love from the Cocoa Sends Love digital stamp set.

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by…have an inspiring Friday!
