Let's Scrap NSD13#8 Colour Cardstock & Recipe challenge

Today is my turn to host a challenge at Let's Scrap for National Scrapbooking Month in May! My challenge to create a single page layout with these criteria:
  • start off with just a non-white colored PLAIN cardstock (Black, kraft and color cardstocks are allowed) and must use only one of the options below from #1 - 4 to create the background or emblish
  • 1. Combination ribbons/jute/twine
  • 2. One or many designs of washi/paper tapes or alternatively use the tutorial by Sue Down to make your own tissue papertape.
  • 3. Stencils with ink/mist/paint and/or pen work
  • 4. Stamps and ink only
The examples to my challenge is pretty flat, so here goes :
#1 Say Cheese (NSD13#8, 12-19-12) : American Craft Jute, October Afternoon ribbon/lace/Alpha stickers
#2 Flour Power (NSD13#8, 2-2-12) : Layers of Washi tapes + yellow cardstock - MT/Classiky washi tapes & Lily Bee Designs ABC alpha stickers for title
