Washi Shapes

The Technique Junkies have a Yahoo Group, and we have a weekly challenge to encourage members to try a 'technique of the week'.  Washi Shapes is the technique of the week this week : )

  I thought it would  be so fun to make a card for Chinese New Year (Which is on 1/31).
I used a Michael Strong Kimono die and mounted it on dimensionals with a piece of Mulberry like cardstock I bought in China last year as the backdrop. I used a Copic Marker to color a piece of Silk Ribbon for the sash. The Kanji says Happy New Year. I cut toothpicks for the top and the bottom of the banner. 2014 is the Year of the Horse

  I am in Asia vacationing with  my daughter- I will be back in early Feb- so if you do not see me stopping by your blog...that is why : )  Please say a prayer for us for safe travels!

Thanks for stopping by!
