Independent Couture

The new challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show is called : Tape it Up!
It's all about using washi tape, tissue tape, masking tape....or even a handmade tape.

I searched the internet for ideas and found a lot flowers, banners, flags, cards with strips of tape and wrapping things. I started by searching my tapes and was really surprised that i found more than 3 rolls.

I had no idea what to do at this time.....and started to prepare my workspace in the kitchen by using a non stick baking sheet and hold it down with tape (:o) My usual way to use tape*lol*

Still nothing in mind....i used Ranger Glue and Seal to adhere the tape to thicker cardstock as i  would be sure it's really sticking.

A tape collage....what can i do .........???
Let's try one of my new couture templates from LaBlanche

Using tape to stick together  to have a look first..

My first thought...very independent (:o)

Ok...i'll need some ebellishments, too

Cutting circles for flowers.....

....and wrapped tape around..

Her is the finished independent couture collage

Adhered the collage to silver painted corrugated cardbord. Strips of tape around. The saying is written on masking tape, adhered to washi tape.

Cool Flowers

Lot's of stickles on  the dress

The black stripe is painted with acrylic paint.

Hope you had fun watching my process
Taped up ...a lot (:o)
