Gold Weaving Background with Vase by Holly Brown


Hi folks, it’s Holly popping in with another surprise posting this weekend.  Remember the washi weaving card I shared last weekend?  I played with black and gold cardstock for my paper weaving this time.  It’s a lot of fun once you get the hang of the weaving.  I cut the black and gold cardstocks into 1/4″ strips and then weaved them together.  I created a much tighter weave, and I love how this background resembles a bamboo placemat or a rug.

I pulled out this image from the Tea Time in the Orient sheet which I thought was a vase.  I stamped it with Versamark and embossed it with gold embossing powder.  After the melted embossing powder cooled, I cut out the vase with fine tipped scissors.  I cut a square of black cardstock and turned it so that it looks like a diamond on the black and gold weaving background.  The vase is adhered to the black diamond with some foam tape.

Upon reading the description on the Art Neko website, I found out that what I thought was a vase is actually a tea cup with a cover to keep the tea warm.   I learn something new every day!  🙂

    How classy this looks in gold and black, Holly. Your paper-weaving skills are very impressive. I have had a couple of Chinese mugs with lids, and seen them in restaurants too. Since I drink my tea black, keeping it hot is not one of my problems, though.
