Well, this is a completely new technique for me. And while this isn't the prettiest card I've ever created, I'm still proud of myself for giving it a try. I followed the tutorial that Nichole Heady shared today over on the Papertrey Ink Blog so that I could play along in their challenge.
I stamped the stripes onto a piece of cream paper (similar to the way Nichole showed us in the video), and I also cut four sentiment images that I layered (just like Nichole showed in the tutorial). I will definitely use that idea again because I like how it makes the thin sentiment stand out more. I also added some little hearts that I die cut from another PTI die-cut favorite. Like I said, not the prettiest card I've ever made, but definitely something different and fun. I will use it for giing to one of my nieces as a special "pick-me-up".
I'm going to share my card in a few challenges, of course including the one for which it was created (the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge at Papertrey Ink). I hope you will all give this technique a try. It's always fun to learn something new.
Nichole Heady's Papertrey Ink Blog - Make It Monday Challenge #226 - Creating With Stripes. As I mentioned, it's not gorgeous; but I sure tried. I used two Papertrey Ink die-cuts including the sentiment (happy) and the small heart from the set of three hearts at PTI. I'm proud of myself for giving it a try!
