Faux Washi Pot and Dragonfly




CLICK ON THE PHOTO FOR A LARGER IMAGE

Hello TJ Friends from Kathie McGuire. Today, I'm sharing a card with a background using the Faux Washi technique from the 8-2011 newsletter. It's such an easy and fast background to make; I've made dozens, then stashed them away for the time when I need a fantastic background.

I stamped a pot stamp and a small dragonfly stamp (with Versamark and heat embossed them) from Michael Strong Stamps along with some pre-cut flowers from the bridal section at Michael's. I sponged some Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges of the flowers because they were a little too bright, then added a few gems to the centers. I decided my little dragonfly needed some motion, so I ran a copper cord through the flowers and attached it to his tail! Fly away, be free!!!

I hope you've enjoyed today's project and thanks for much for stopping by to visit the TJ Blog today!!
