Easy Zig Background – Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi it’s Therese and today I create a very easy Zig background.

For today’s project I used the Bamboo Rose flowers on my background with a highlight with one of the new Perfect Pair Washi tapes.  I used gold as a highlight and embossed a sentiment from the Painted Greetings set.

Great card and video, Therese! Love the tips you shared and clever idea adding the washi that way with the acetate partial overlay. Eager to try with my Zigs!

Fabulous card, Terese! Love the “looseness” of the colours and the linear floral images you chose for your card.

Nice, elegant simplicity. Loved it Therese. What’s the brand of card stock you used? I’m testing out different card stocks for my water colour projects. Thanks.

Hi Therese, I am so happy for the tutorial as the picture alone does not do it the justice it deserves. So very beautiful!

This is beautiful. Your design just lifts it from pretty to very special. I recently purchased the Bamboo Roses stamp set and love seeing fabulous designs like this.
