Essentials by Ellen – Wasabi again
As you may recall, I stamped all the images in this set 3 times and colored them in different ways, then cut them out with my Brother ScanNCut 2. So I saved all the pieces I didn’t use on the other card I made, and I’ve been wanting to make another card. I went to Dick Blick and bought some washi origami paper JUST to use with this release. In addition, I ordered another pattern set from Ellen Hutson LLC called Bokeh Dots that I’ve been wanting for a long time so I decided to create a background with it with the colors from the origami paper. Lookie:
What a happy card! I love the bright colors, and they support the sentiment very well.
I love the looser watercolor look I achieved with the Zig Clean Color markers. Of course, I cut these out with my Brother ScanNCut 2, but for those who prefer matching dies, I have linked them below. The origami paper was SO vibrant that I had to cut the use down to the tiny strip on the right or it took over EVERYTHING. The wood veneer from Crafter’s Companion is the perfect background for my delicious Japanese meal.
I stamped the greeting on Bazzill Card Shoppe card stock and embossed with Hero Arts White EP.
I love, love, love that Bokeh Dots set. It was so easy to get exactly the fun, happy background I was going for. I stamped this background with some beautiful inks from Altenew LLC.
I used some Hai gold washi tape and this wooden doodad from Kaisercrafts Oriental wooden shapes set. I wasn’t sure which want this was supposed to face or what the character was, so you know what I did? I downloaded a Chinese/Japanese/Korean character translator on my phone and it actually translated it for me when I got it in the right position and orientation. This is the Chinese character for Love. Isn’t that awesome?
