Washi and Gold

 Playing again today with some pretty washi tape that is highlighted in gold, so I followed suit and used gold sentiments.  These washi tapes come with a large focal point, like a wreath or a bouquet, plus 6 or so smaller images that can be used alone or layered over the focal point.  I chose those smaller images for my cards today, and mixed them with a variety of supplies from lots of companies.


supplies: white, Doll Pink, and Metallic Gold cardstock, Pink Fresh Studio English Garden washi, PTI (retired) mix & mat Scallops dies, Simon Happy Birthday dies, adhesive squares to lift up focal panel

I hadn't played with this pretty mix & mat scallops set for a long time.  It has a lovely floral lace center, plus stitching and a scalloped border.  Then I proceeded to cover up most of it with the little rose bouquets!  As I said, because the washi highlights the designs with gold, I added a metallic gold sentiment die, then lifted that whole panel above the card base.  

My next cards brings in my favorite gingham motif, using a peachy color that matches these florals from the Joyful Bouquet washi.

supplies: white and peach cardstock, Doodlebug peach Buffalo Check dp, Pink Fresh Studio Joyful Bouquet washi and Perfect Sentiments stamps and dies, Simon Ultrafine detail gold embossing powder, Penny Black Stitched Stacker dies in 2 sizes, adhesive foam to lift florals

I just stacked up my gingham and stitched backgrounds, added my gold-embossed sentiment, then popped up the washi florals.

When I use something gold, I'm finding that I can get better pictures when I take my cards outside and photograph them.  Taken in the usual place inside, the gold shows up pretty dull.

Thanks for your visit today - hope your weekend is a fun one!
