Little Tangles Sketch challenge - washi tape tutorial!

  You may know that I find sketches inspirational for a starting off point when I sit down to create, but I rarely sit down to design my own sketch.  I was tickled when I was offered the opportunity to give it a try at Little Tangles.  I thought I would keep the sketch clean and simple (CAS) for those with a CAS-tastic creative gene, but it can be embellished and layered to your heart's desire if you prefer.  At any rate, I would be thrilled if you are able to participate in this challenge.
    For my card I used hearts from two different Neat and Tangled stamp sets:


Washi tape tutorial:
My red chevron open heart (top right) is the same washi tape as the strip down the side of the card.  I stamped the heart in black ink on the card, then tore a piece of washi tape to cover the heart.  Lastly I gently cut around the heart outline with my Xacto knife and removed the excess washi tape.  The other heart is colored with Copic markers and has glossy accents on top.

stamps:  Neat and Tangled "Just Hello" (open heart) and "Kindness Matters" (circle heart and sentiment)
washi tape:  My Mind's Eye "All is Bright"
paper:  smooth white (100 lb for Copic markers)
glossy accents
scrap ribbon
Copic markers

Play with the sketch, rotate it, flip it, just have fun...then link your creation at Little Tangles.  You have until October 27th to play along.

Happy Thursday!
