Pattern mixing and Sequins!

I was stoked to see this month's Mixy-Matchy Style challenge at Moxie Fab World, because I love mixing & matching! And while I was at it, I decided to give some sequins a whirl, since not only are they featured at Let's Get Trendy Now 3, but I happened to get a little baggie of them in a bunch of crafty stuff from a friend. Lots of lace and ribbon, and way down at the bottom was a sandwich bags with beads & sequins. Score!
Supplies: papers from Amy Tangerine; washi tapes from We R Memory Keepers; sentiment stickers from Mrs. Grossman's


I used tiny dabs of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic (using a toothpick) to stick the sequins on. For the patterns, there's a mix of washi tape & paper smidges. I've ripped the edges of the paper to give a washi-edge appearance there as well, to draw them together. So, from the top:

yellow woodgrain - washi
pink stripe - paper
blue floral - washi on top of paper
blue houndstooth - washi
pink chevron - paper
yellow floral - washi

I had been planning to stamp the sentiment but then eyed up these stickers & thought the mix of fonts would totally suit the mix of colours & patterns.

There's lots of time left to play with both of these challenges - what have you got up your crafty sleeve?

Festive and fun! Washi tape and sequins seem destined for one another, don't they?

The washi tape and sequins are the perfect complement to the Amy Tan paper. Looks like something she would have designed. Great card!
