Challenge Your Stash

 I have joined a group on Splitcoast where we are Challenged to 'Use our Stash'. Additionally, each month we have a theme- this month is Silver, Black and White. Such a challenge gets you looking in your stash for some ideas- so much stash...hehehe  (I won't mention unused).


  I decided to get out the Washi Tape. I seem to believe I will not buy any more, then I walk by a display and behold, another roll I have to have.......
  I used a cardstock that I purchased many years ago that is black on the outside and white on the inside. I layered the Washi diagonally. The image (unused) is by Our Daily Bread Designs. The silver backing for the image and the musical notes are Christmas wrapping paper : )  . The musical notes dies are by Ellentina.
 Well, I could not stop at one......


  I used more vintage Washi this time. The image and sentiment are by Unity Stamps (also never used before).  I punched 3 hearts with a SU punch using the silver wrapping paper. I added Sparkle on the image using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen, then got carried away and outlined the image and al of the words in the sentiment.

Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp- AG
Perfectly Created Chaos-Black and White +one color
Word Art Wednesday- AG

  I am almost back at full speed- I am loading all of the programs I use the most on my computer.  I still have not figured out how to fix the header on my blog, may have to try another change and see if it goes back to being centered : )

Thanks for stopping by!
