I'm a little late with this challenge due to being away and then being a little unwell and too busy! My apologies for not visiting much during the last week but now you know why! Luckily, the Craft Barn Callendar challenges are open until the final week so you can enter at any time.
Challenge #5 is to use paper tape either bought or self made. I opted to use some Tim tissue tape which I love but don't use that often. I'm still just playing with whatever takes my fancy to complete the challenges rather than being specific to any particular season or month. I might make my December entry the exception to the rule!
A little bird (who shall be nameless Buttons!) told me that the challenge for Sunday Stampers this week is to use Blue on your project so I thought I'd link my calendar page there too. Thanks Buttons!
Here's what I made using a die cut, some tissue tape, some stamps, some embossing and my trusty sewing machine:
|The finished calendar page - looks a little washed out but for once it was sunny! I've used my sewing machine quite a lot for this piece - I really enjoy sewing anyway and I like the look of the edges finished with ink and stitches.|

Hope you like my inky offering and over the next few days, I hope to catch up with you all.
