Stamptember Celebrations at Simon Says Stamp

A big warm welcome to my regular lovely visitors & also to new hoppers visting me today :)
My post is a special one today as we are celebrating 
at 
Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. Over the past 10 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a STAMPtember ™ event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making,scrapbooking, mixed media and many forms of altering and expressing art.

We are helping to kick off festivities with a DESIGN TEAM BLOG HOP

This week my lovely teamies & I are featuring WASHI TAPE on our creations.
I have used Love My Tape polka dot black, it was nice and easy to line up so I covered a piece of thin card with it and punched some butterflies, die cut my frame and made a panel to go across my card. I was amazed at how easy my cut frame came out of the die using Washi Tape as usually this one's a bit fiddly to remove.
Ingredients - Image - Magnolia, Tilda learning to dance, Medium - Copics, Papers - Glitz, Pretty In Pink, Pearls - Hero Arts, Lace - Simplicity, Flower - Prima, Gillian, Sentiment - Magnolia, Doily - Royal Lace, Resin corner - Prima, Sparkle - Donna Salazar Sugar Shimmer
The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, E93, R20, hair - E44, E43, E41, dress & shoes - C1, C0, C00 / RV11, RV10, RV000
 I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
