Embossed Washi Thank You!

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Splitcoaststampers Technique Lovers challenge.   The challenge was Embossed Washi Background, which I had never heard of or tried before!
I just love how this came out!   I adhered strips of Washi over a white card panel until it was completely covered.   I started with the bird one in the center and worked above and below from there as I wanted the birds the central focus.  Then I embossed the panel with my SU Square Lattice Embossing Folder, added the die cut THANK YOU and adhered the panel to a black panel and then to a white card base.  

That beautiful Rose Birds Washi is by Alexandra Renke, I used her beautiful Foxes Washi on this Mother's Day card back in May.  The others are just generic Washi tapes I got probably at either Michaels or Joann.

What a great way to use up all those washi tapes we have - and to create a beautiful background at the same time!

I'm linking my card to:

Paper:  White, True Black - PTI
Accessories:  Rose Birds Washi tape - Alexandra Renke, pink dotted washi, black striped washi, black floral washi - Michaels or JoAnn, On the Edge Thank You die - Simon Says Stamp,  Square Lattice Embossing Folder - SU.

Beautiful selection of washi tapes, especially the one with the birds on it. It all looks great with the dry embossing.

Gorgeous card and fabulous technique Julia. The bird washi tape is gorgeous and I love how you've layered with the other patterned strips. Adding the embossing makes it look like it's all one piece. Reminds me of another technique done with die-cuts and then embossing. Very beautiful card! xx
