SCC day2 Darling Stripes

Day 2 of Spring Card Camp - stripes.

Now, I love stripes (I love dots and checks too), but have never made my own like this before.   Hmmm, might just have to have a go at tartan/plaid...

... and I had this big, bad, black stamp just waiting to be used on something bold like this.  I think I've had it about a year and never used it.

I got bored with the straight edges on the masking tape, so tore it along the roll and mixed it up a bit... so, some straight, some torn.

Stamp: Simon Says
Distress inks
Gold pen (text & edges)

LOL... "big, bad, black stamp" 😁 What a great use for it here, and the gold gel pen was a great touch for breaking up the solidness of the sentiment stamp. Your color combo is just gorgeous too. Well done, my friend!!! And thank you for sharing this with us at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge 😁

What a beauty Carol - love the variation of the stripes with the torn and straight edges, and the big bad bold black stamp over it is perfect!
