Japanese washi papers

Until recently I have never been attracted to washi papers... that is until you see them in real life. Just recently I received a beautiful card and package from Carolyn who I met via Etsy. And she sent me some beautiful washi papers and I couldn't wait to try a card with them.



So here is my first try. I think they lend themselves well to the grid style.
 

In real life it has gold shimmers on the paper.



And this is Carolyn's card that so inspired me. It also shimmers more in real life.

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi Betty, I don't know as I have never seen the origami papers. These remind me of the texture of mulberry paper. XX
