DIY Washi- WMS Make it Monday

This week Claire has a challenge and tutorial on her blog to make your own washi!! Lots of fun and the tutorial is fabulous---it's really easy peasy!! I have some washi and have to admit that I really don't use it- but, I should.

Here's my card



 
Used several Waltzingmouse stamps to make my washi- a small image from Large Doily stamped in pink onto white tissue paper (most of my inks are SU and I'm thinking that a chalk ink would have been better keep the detail of the image), checked image from Gingham & Co was stamped with green onto green tissue paper, and lastly the smaller Chicken Wire image was stamped in pink onto white tissue paper. The image is the sweet girl from Half Pink Heroines stamped in soft suede onto XPress It blending cardstock and colored with copics. Working on my copic coloring-geesh! Sentiments from the same set.

You can find all the sets I used here. Browse a bit- I know you'll find something you'll love!!
 
I started with Retro Sketches48 and veered off a little!!



Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

This is absolutely darling! I haven't played with this WMS set nearly enough. Love the strips of washi and the way the buttons echo the circles on the tape!
