Washi on Shiplap, plus 1

Hi fellow crafters!  We all have situations when we don't have much time to make a card, and need something we can grab and adapt.  I think I found the solution in this roll of washi tape that has several large florals and lots of tiny ones.

supplies: white cardstock, Pink Fresh Studio Painted Florals Washi and matching Floral Elements dies, MFT Watercolor Wash dp in peach, Impression Obsession Wooden Plank cling, stamped in a pale peach, sentiment from Concord & 9th Brushed Blossom, peach ribbon, adhesive foam squares to lift wreath

There's also a large bouquet of flowers that fills an A2 size card front nicely.  I like the pink watercolor wash behind it.  Here I just applied it to white cardstock, then trimmed it out with a border die.

supplies: white cardstock, Painted Florals Washi, sentiment from Simon Beautiful Flowers, Penny Black Stitched Stackers die

I am very pleased with the quality and ease of use of this washi - it has a nice matte finish, not shiny as I had imagined it might have been.  I believe, but haven't tried yet, that you can even stamp and emboss right on top of it!  This will be wonderful for quick cards!  The washi also includes a tiny border 5 1/2" long, and lots of tiny floral sprays that can be layered together. And for those of you who want to choose your own colors for these motifs, there's a lovely stamp set that is available, called Floral Elements, which also works perfectly with the dies.  Pink Fresh has thought of all the possibilities!

Thanks for stopping by - enjoy your weekend!

Stunning Lin. I've never seen these before but love the idea of having the matching dies. They make incredible cards.
