Poser - Love My Tapes
Hi there everyone. I think I neglected to mention that I've joined the design team over at Love My Tapes. This is my first project for them - I hope you'll go check them out, they make some pretty cool tapes - fabric, lace, clear - all of it self-adhesive.
Have you ever tried using fabric tape for more than just a small accent? It's so pretty, it deserves a bit of the spotlight, I think - so I used the Brooke fabric tape to create a border around part of my layout.
I used some of the dark pink lace tape as a border strip. I love these lace tapes - so much easier to adhere than regular lace - no messing with adhesive that will show through.
The pink 'reptile' fabric sheets have such great texture:
I die-cut a flourish from the fuchsia suede fabric sheet for a pop of colour. The fabric sheets die-cut beautifully with the deep sizzix dies.
I cut wobbly circles from the brown dot/floral fabric, and roughly sewed around them, for a little contrast. The background paper is from Hambly Screenprints. I took advantage of the resist effect with the white print, and spritzed with glimmer mists.
And of course, the story:
