Musical Ethan

Hi Copic Friends! It's Thursday, and I'm (Linda) here to share a card.

Today's creation is quite simple, but I like the way it turned out. It is a birthday card for an elderly gentleman so I didn't want to embellish it too heavily with flowers or ribbons. The background of the card is decorated with blue dotted and green dotted Washi tape. I also covered a piece of scrap paper with the blue tape before I cut it with a Nestabilities die to mat the image. Since the Washi tape is an adhesive I chose not to have thread in my needle when I 'sewed' around the image. I used the method Sam introduced in Tuesday's Tips and Tricks to create the background around the image.

The image I used is Your Next Stamp's 'Musical Ethan'.
