Washi fun- MFP Swap

 I joined in a swap in Feb. with Mark's Finest Paper with an Oriental theme. I made a card with a technique from the Technique Junkies called Washi Herringbone technique.
 I colored the image with Copics and cut it out with a slender white border.

Here are the cards I recieved back:
 This is from Pat G- I love this card- so sweet!

 This is from Cindy B. I love the embossed Kanji- what a cool touch!

And I am going to post Sue Wisniewski's card inside and out:

 So pretty IRL.

Mark's Finest Papers sent us a small stamp set for joining in the swap

 There is a swap in March, but it is not Oriental Themed. The next Oriental Swap is in April- there are still a few slots open- you can check it out HERE.


Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Shelly! I was in this swap, too as you know. thank you so much for the nice compliments on my card. I recieved one of your cards and I really like it. I've done the herribone technique but never with washi tape. I'll have to try that.
