This is for KellyJean's fun "Punched Washi" challenge. We did have the option to die-cut, which is a good thing seeing as most of my punches struggle to punch cardstock.
I have a love hate relationship with washi tape. I have heaps of them and sadly half are no longer sticky, the printed paper has separated from the sticky bit. Since I discovered this a few months ago, I now use the remaining tapes as masking tape, I figure I might as well get some use out of them before they go to the craft graveyard.
I love my Julie Nutting doll stamps and I really don't know why I rarely use them...oh well this cutie got inky today.
I started by placing different washi tapes on a scrap of cardstock and running the feather die through the Vagabond lots of times.
I stamped the image onto a scrap of card, then layered the feathers to resemble a skirt. I then stamped the image on the front panel, did lots of scoring (which does not show up in the photo), coloured her shoes, bodice and headband with a black pen.
Finally I glued on her skirt, added some twine and placed the panel on a card base that had been edged with more washi tape.
I tried to channel my inner Angie (Ohmypapers!) when staging the photo. Thank you for looking.
Tip: I used my MISTI to stamp the image, the card has a linen finish so multiple stamping was required. A lot of my cling stamps don't cling anymore. I use a swipe of glue from a kids school glue stick to adhere it to MISTI. Just wipe the glue off MISTI and the stamp with an alcohol free baby wipe.

This is adorable Susie. And, I can totally relate with you on the washi tape thing. I only have about 4 rolls - I don't understand those that have hundreds of rolls.?? I hardly ever use mine except to hold dies in place on the Vagabond. And, I have Julie Nutting stamps that haven't even seen ink yet. I got them after seeing Stephanie Klauk's adorable book made with JN stamps. I just "had" to have them. I'm glad you got some use out of yours my friend.

SO CUTE, SUSIE!!! What a FABULOUS WAY to use Washi Tape! I don't have as much of the Washi Tape as you do, I am SURE, but I will remember that the sticky goes away! LOL I do have a roll of "Frozen" for my daughter; who after I got it, said she was OVER Frozen! LOL So, I use it for holding dies in place. ;) I LOOOVE the striking Black & White you'd done on this doll!!! ;) She's just SO CUTE!!!!! Thank you for coming over & commenting on my card too! (((HUGS!)))
