First of my Asian themed cards




As promised last week, here is one of my Asian cards. I'm using my precious Washi paper that I brought back from Japan. I got a lot of it, but just the same, it's expensive and I tend to just want to hoard it, lol. Always afraid of the day that I won't have anymore.



This particular Washi design has lots of teal in it, so I used Taken With Teal cardstock to draw that out. Also I love our Brushed Gold papers, they come in perfectly with the Washi! I added gold accents to the flowers (that I colored with Twinkle H2Os) with a Gold Metallic reinker and a fine tipped brush. This stamp is from the Artfully Asian set, I really love this set, it's so dainty and can make a card for just about any occasion.
