Watermarks & Washi Tape

So I'm just a little bit excited that I've been published in the current issue of Australian Scrapbook Creations Issue #104 with these cards! They were all created by the same process using different washi tapes and stamps. It's an easy process with unlimited potential!

Firstly here is my spread in the magazine.

And here is a closer look at my cards!

The basic tutorial is pretty simple and is as follows:

1. Stamp chosen stamp randomly with Antique Linen Distress Ink on a 9.5cm x 14cm ivory cardstock. Edge with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

2. Add two strips of Washi Tape across the card (as per the photos). Tie ribbon or twine around the card.

3. Mount the ivory cardstock onto a 10cm x 14.5cm co-ordinating cardstock. Attach layers onto another co-ordinating cardstock A5 folded and scored base card.

4. Stamp sentiment on an ivory cardstock off cut and trim with a corner punch. Edge with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

5. For the flower: Punch x3 large & x3 medium daisies from cardstock. Apply some non-permenant tape to the back of these flowers and attach to scrap paper. Use the same punch, to re-punch the flowers, but slightly twist it first, so that the second punch cuts the first flower petals almost in half, creating small, skinny petals. Peel off scrap paper, edge with Vintage Photo Distress Ink & attach together as shown.

6. Embellish with x3 rhinestones and a co-ordinating die cut/punch/stamp.

I'm entering these cards into the following challenges:
