Spots and stripesPosted: March 15, 2013
I am just going to make the deadline for this week’s Less is More challenge. I haven’t taken on many stamping challenges lately so I wanted to do this one. When I saw this dramatic card by Pamela, I knew I had my layout; I just needed to work out how to add the spots and stripes. I reached for my trusty background stamps including one I rarely pull out, the woodgrain stamp from the Penny Black slapstick cling set, Inspiring. I also used the new background Dots in Space. Both stamps were inked with Memento ink pads but markers would have worked well too. I used the same inks to sponge after stamping.
It took me two attempts to make this card! On my first try I had all the colour panel complete, then managed to stamp the sentiment straight also only to mess up the line of dashes! What line of dashes, you ask? It did not get invited back for my second attempt but if I had found the right little birthday silhoutte stamp to stamp over the colour panel on the left I might have done that.
Anyway, there you have it a colourful card for any age, male or female.
