toot my washi horn (Three Cool Chicks, I am Doe, CFC)

Consider this a triple crown challenge.

Take this inspiration photo from I am Doe.

Add the challenge #72 at CASual Fridays to toot your own horn by being inspired by your own blog header.  See above.

And I've had washi on the brain since Day 1 of the Three Cool Chicks Trendy week.

This is what I've come up with:

Some heat embossed leaves turned trees.  And one colorful tree made from washi (store bought and homemade) which I trimmed into teensy strips, adhered to a stamped image as a guide and then fussy cut.  Gave it a washi trunk too.

The photo inspiration is pretty obvious but I really like the simplicity of this card just like the simplicity of my blog header.  And gray.  I love gray as a design element.  And the trees in rows.  Reminds me of the rows and rows of grapevines that surround me.

Thanks for looking.

Supplies thanks:
Paper: card base Buttinette, CS papermania
Stamps: leaves Basic Grey,  sentiment Jane's Doodles
Ink: Versamark, Memento
Other: embossing powder, washi Bella Blvd & Rayher (also homemade from tissue paper)
