I’m also entering this to Stampalot Challenge’s Monochromatic challenge.

And here is my card!

With foam dimensionals I gave the top layer a little lift so you could see a peek of the black paper underneath for more stripey effect.

It was the perfect chance to break out my favourite hoarding items: washi tape and use them on a card! Seeing stripe and chevron in the manner the fabric felt, these were the two tapes I picked from my stash.

I decided to sew them on with a little cream thread, zig-zagged since we’re on the subject of clothes 😉 The ends of the washi tapes are handcut! Phew that was a little difficult as I am terrible with a pair of scissors.

Deliberately letting the ‘T’ start off from the black of the chevron as I see black-on-black use on the model in the inspiration image… Still not sure if I like the effect on a card but I think it’s pretty cool!
