Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge: Use Washi!

Hello Friends and welcome to The Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge! We have a fun challenge this week which is to "Use washi tape or faux washi tape"!

Our Fabulous sponsor this week is The Doodle Garden!!!

Here is my card...

Let me start with my image which is called "Last Beach Day" by The Doodle Gardens.  I just love the beach so this image really caught my eye and I thought it was so pretty!  I know we're not even in Spring yet but I just can't wait for the weather to warm up and to be able to hit the beach this Summer!  I colored up my image with my Copic Markers and added some Tim Holtz distress ink in Broken China around the edges.  I'm pretty new to using washi tape but I  really love seeing all the projects out there using it.  There are so many fun ways you can use it too!  As a newbie,  I kept my use of it today pretty simple and framed my cute image with some cute polka dot washi I picked up from Michaels.  I believe it's a Recollections brand.  The pretty papers I used for the background are called  "Here and Now" by Echo Park.  I further embellished my card with some recycled burlap rope tied in a knot holding a sea shell charm from my stash. 

Here are some additional supplies used on my card:
Black Tuxedo - Memento

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  "washi" projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes from the store! 

Hope you all like my  card!  Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by to visit! :)
