And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Beach Bums + Fake Washi Tape ...  afternoon.
It has been rainy and messy the past few days.. which is fine. 
We need the rain and I really wanted an excuse to stay home today. 
I have had a super busy weekend leaving me little time to create. 
That is why you are getting this post SUPER LATE and I hope you will forgive me for that. 

This card features the Fresh Brewed Designs rubber stamp: Beach Bums. 
She is sassy and fun and loves summertime (when it is not raining that is :) 
I created this card using papertrey inc paper (orange and teal) prismacolor markers and glossy accents.
The gradient bright  paper strip was created using ink it up inks in yellow and orange.
 I used a blender pin to smear them together.
I have been seeing the washi tape (like a printed masking tape)  on so many projects as well as in some really fun packages my friend has sent me recently. I have not been able to purchase any of my own, so I looked up tutorials. People have used various things from paper to tissue paper for theirs. I like the see through quality the washi tape has... so the paper is too thick for me.. and I did not have any tissue paper that was thin .... so I found the next best thing! A pack of printed napkins from my daughters birthday part that had never been opened. I thought the dots resembled bubbles well enough.
 Here is what I did to create my washi tape:

First, since this napkin was two ply, I  removed the white napkin underneath

Next I laid the napkin flat, print side down. I took strips of double sided tape, 
cut them to the length I wanted, and laid them carefully over the print I desired my tape to be. 

After that I carefully cut around the tape with my fussy cutting scissors and voila!
 My own (fake) washi tape.

The real stuff is much prettier, no doubt, but this will do in a pinch! :)
