SC273 - Washi Tape Get Well

My friend, Heather, turned me on to Washi Tape - Japanese masking tape. It is the coolest stuff. It comes in all these incredible colors and patterns. It's a low tack tape so it's "repositionable". I had just ordered the "waterfall" collection from HAPPY TAPE and as Heather says, "was petting it". Yesterday, I was shopping at Archivers (avoiding going home to an empty, Jazz-free house) when I saw this Stampendous Peacock stamp and those bright aquas and limes in the Waterfall collection coalesced in my brain.

The peacock was colored with Copics and for additional sparkle I used some glitter (everything is better with glitter, right?) The little pop of raspberry in the flower really breaks up the blue/green/yellow monopoly.

Close up of the glitter areas. You can see I stamped the sentiment directly on the washi tape. Since it's not a porous tape I used Archival black and allowed it to dry overnight.

The weekly SCS Sketch Challenge (SC273) was perfect for the washi tape and peacock image!
