Musical Ethan

Today I am sharing a card I made using Washi tape and Your Next Stamp's 'Musical Ethan'. The card is simple, and I like the way it turned out. It is for an elderly gentleman's birthday so I didn't want it heavily embellished with flowers and ribbons.

The background on the card is made with strips of green dotted and blue dotted Washi tape. I also covered a piece of scrap paper with the blue tape before cutting it with a die to mat the image. I chose not to have thread in my needle when I 'sewed' around the image since the tape has adhesive on it. (Faux thread could be created with a marker.) The background around Ethan was done using a technique explained HERE.
