DeNami Wonderful Washi blog hop

 Welcome to the DeNami Design blog hop. I hope you are having a wonderful, inspirational time. You should've arrived to my blog from the talented Pattie. If not, you can head back to the beginning for a full list of participants.
 
The theme for this month's blog hop is washi tape. It has been one of the latest trends in the crafting industry and DeNami now carries their own stock of washi yumminess. I am fairly new to using washi, but have fallen in love with it and have used it on a few projects in the last couple of months.
 


For my card, I CASED myself from this card. I really liked how I layered it onto the cardstock to create and background, almost like a piece of patterned paper. I wanted to use a big focal image and so I inked up Camera and the sentiment is from Petite Fours Heartfelt Greetings. I have had these two stamps for a while and have tried to pair them together unsuccessfully in the past. I came across previous DeNami DT, Laurie Willison's post here and thought that it was quite clever of her to stamp the sentiment inside the image. I am going to have to try this technique more often.

 
Your next stop along the hop is Diana. I can't wait to see what she has created!
 
Don't forget about the THREE $20 gift certificates that will be given away! One gift certificate will go to a random participant and TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop! You have until January 14, 2013 11:59pm PST to comment and be eligible.
