Washi Herringbone

Here is a pretty background technique for a card using- Washi tape.
 This was made for the Feb/March Technique Junkies Newsletter and it was fun to actually use some of my Washi Tape up!  I love this beautiful butterfly and the sentiment is perfect my my daughter(s), I call them both Beautiful (or Petunia- hahaha) and the Kanji is perfect for Katie! The stamps are by Mark's Finest Papers.

 Still a bit under the weather- I am OK as long as I do not eat anything......  Jello and tea are OK.....

Challenges:
MFP- Thursday Color challenge- Grey and Cranberry
Sugar Creek Hollow- Make your own background
Sister Act- Anything Goes
CRAFT- What season where you are

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, Shelly, sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Try a little Ginger Ale. I even spike mine with more Ginger. I learned about Ginger being good for that from Jackie Kalchert. Your card is stunning. I love the tapes and the pattern you did! The butterfly is gorgeous!
