Valentine Cutie - Love My Tapes

Ouf - this is what happens to my photos when I can't use my regular set-up. I love visiting my family (loooooove it), but I still haven't found the ideal spot for photographing layouts at my Mom's place. Ah well - the layout made it to CHA in time (I made this for Love My Tapes), and I did get a decent photo (even if it's not perfect).

I combined strips of fabric and lace tapes with a little bit of scrap paper for a quick photo 'mat', then added some stitching for texture.

Even though the background paper already had some depth, I wanted a bit more black, so I added some stamps.

I used fabric sheets for some of the larger circular elements in the background as well as on the chipboard for embellishments.  The fabrics are easy to layer with the tapes - lots of texture without a lot of bulk.

Question of the day - have you ever used self-adhesive lace?
