Card - Friend - Washi Tape

I made these cards for my monthly card exchange.

I started with a white layer 3.75 x 5.00 inches.  I stamped the village scene from Stampendous in black near the bottom edge.  I chalked the image. I stamped the word Friends with a clear stamp and VersaFine Onyx ink. I chose 3 Washi tapes, different in width, color and pattern. I started with the widest, turquoise dots on the outside followed by yellow chevron then black stripes to repeat the black in the stamping. I ripped their ends to be irregular and brought the other ends to the back of the layer. I layered it on a piece of yellow card stock at bit larger then onto a black card.

I'm submitting the card to City Crafter Challenge - Washi Tape Challenge 251 which I discovered through Darnell at djkarkkreations.  She is the guest there for March.

Here's my second card. I thought I would change it up a bit. I chose grey dots, pink floral and yellow stripes for the Washi tapes.  I water colored the image this time but it really warped my paper so I had to steam and press to get it flattened.
