Tribute to Tenia

I'm quite the fan of card-making blogger Tenia Nelson . I love her unique and contemporary creations and love that she has her own signature - all her cards seem to incorporate a bit of washi with some 'stitching'. I've been considering sneakily stealing her designs for some time ...but now I don't have to! Papercraft Crew are inviting us to CASE their Design Team...and guess who's on the team?

Here's the card I cased.

Using the colours from Color Throwdown , I made a base out of grey cardstock and stamped an Avery Elle butterfly in grey ink. Then I splattered it with Dylusions white ink spray - which totally disappeared! So I used a Paper Artsy splatter stamp with white ink, embossed. I stamped the Pink Fresh Studio sentiment (You are wonderful, brilliant and brave) in pink . Next, the washi - Tenia, I think normally makes her stitches with stickers but I don't have any. So, I used a stitching stamp by 49 Market, using the same grey ink.

I hope I've paid tribute to Tenia's fabulous original while still adding my own ideas...but I did enjoy stealing the signature washi.
