Greetings House guests,

It's June (already)...we're half-way though the year 2017 and over at The House That Stamps Built, there's a new challenge.  

It's Designer's Choice and this month, Donna is the designer who makes the choice and she is challenging us to use Washi tape on our projects.  

I used RI stamps #919-I "Irish Window" and the sentiment is #9717-C "Happy Hello".  

The iris in my garden are in full bloom and they are so beauitful.  We've had nothing but rain for weeks...rarely a day of sunshine, yet somehow the iris are luminous and blooming.  What a sight to see in the early morning light.  

I colored the iris with my Chameleon Colortone Pencils.  I absolutely LOVE using them.  My washi tape is simply placed as a focal image bg.  I added some gold thread behind the image for texture and accent as well as a few sequins.  

Come on over to The House and join in on Donna's challenge.  All the details can be found there.  

For even more incredible DCC challenge inspiration take a look at what these awesome ladies have created.

Deonna - Donna - Heather - Joy - Laurie - Patti J - Shirley

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you'll find some crafting's fun there.

Oh, how pretty. So cute how you put the twine behind your image. Like you, I love my Chameleon pencils too.

Heather said...

This is so gorgeous!! My iris were fabulous this year as well, even though (or maybe because) we have had so much rain. I love the simplicity of your card and all the patterns on your washi are so pretty!
