washi made me do it

Two more beachy creations for you.

I'm still captivated by the gorgeous Korallenriff from Charlie und Paulchen. And I have some pastel washi tapes that were begging for attention.

So thinking I'd mask a wonky rectangle, stamp images and then frame them with washi, I first made the mask.

Then I chose my images to fill the wonky rectangle based on the washi tapes. Then I stamped. Used a cream cardbase, which I ended up not liking so much. And yes, the images are kinda hard to see but pastel was the whole idea. 

Because the washi frame gave the design a playful feel, I pulled out a fun Essentials By Ellen sentiment.

Liking the color combo, but the final result not so much, I tried it again on a white cardbase. And used Abandoned Coral DO for the coral. Duh! Me likey. This oh-so-dainty-but-oh-so-sweet sentiment reads "another year prettier" :)

Fun cards, Maria! The use of the washi tape and that sentiment is perfect together! Wonderful sentiment on your second card, as well! Sometimes the ideas I have in my head seem so grand until the end That's when I usually ditch the card all together. Glad you still shared and tried again. ;)

Two delights, Maria ... they're both fabulous! The fun washi frame and black sentiment add energy and vibrancy to the first ... and those soft pastels on the second are just dreamy ... such a sweet sentiment (words and font) to go with the dreaminess! Hugs, Anita :)
