CASology : Washi

Hi there!

We were amazed by all the weather inspired cards in the gallery last week at CASology !

While on the topic of weather... as I am typing here, Sugar and I just returned from our morning walk... sandblasted!
Yep, it's that time of the year in the UAE when the shamal wind comes and deposits all the sand it picks up on its way from Saudi Arabia... right here !
It means the season is changing. Not so slowly, but surely yes!

BUT!!! I am actually not here to talk about the weather again... we have a new cue card to inspire your designs!


                                                     

Oh boy so many ways to incorporate washi on your cards... if you get stuck, remember Pinterest has a wealth of washi ideas!

I love the look of negative space filled with washi... and this is my card:


washi ideas for cards

An a close up:

washi ideas for cards

I used one bunny image from the Silhouette online store, created a mirror image and filled the negative space by applying 2 different patterns of washi tape to the card base.
I completed the card with my own sentiment (shared below) and a heart embellishment punched from a piece of scrap covered with the same tape.

The sentiment:


some bunny love you free card sentiment



Please visit the rest of the team listed below.. and be inspired!




Sharing my card over at Less is more where the recipe asks for POLKADOTS! :D

Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs
Hannelie

Yeah! a Washi challenge!! I seem to collect it but rarely use it on my cards. I just cant wait to see what the other DT memebers do with it and what great inspiration shows up in the gallery : )

LOVE your card and the sweet little bunnies!

Stay safe from the sand and wind : )

The Queen of the Silhouette strikes again! Those twin bunnies are adorable, and I love how you've 'dressed' them. Such bright and happy washi tape. So darn cute! And your sentiment fits perfectly! Hope the sandstorms don't deter you and Sugar from your walks. Bev

HJ said...

It is such a fun and cute card. I love the washi tapes you used. Have a great day.

Cheryl W. said...

I love ideas for Washi tape, and yours is so fun! I need to use it more often as a design element, instead of just for holding cardstock and dies in place.

Kim Heggins said...

This is so sweet!

Susan said...

Zo anders en origineel om je mooie dotjes-washi zo te gebruiken! Groetjes, Gerrina

Jen W. said...

A perfect washi technique which I must try to remember to use. Love those bunnies and the fun patterns you used for them.
I think I would go mad if I got sandblasted. I get stressed out from sand after an hour on the beach!

Joyce said...

Fantastic way to use Washi, and I have never seen this done before. Love it, and those cute bunnies are perfect.

Nancy said...

I love this technique and I haven't done it in quite sometime! Super card Hannelie!

Sand en wind ...ag nee, maar ek hoop julle het julle stappie geniet!!!! Ek is op die oomblik so lui om te stap en het maande laas ordentlik gestap, maar die kilo's is besig om aan te sit so ek sal 'n plan moet maak!!!
En ooooo, wie kan dan nou nie mal wees oor daai hasies met hulle vrolike kolle en strepe nie, vrou!!!! Ag, dit is sooooo cute en ek's mal oor die klein hartjie om die sentiment te beklemtoon!!! Baie, baie oulik!!!!
Groete
