Wild Card- Stripes


Hi,  We have a great and easy Wild Card Challenge for you this week at Just Us Girls. The word is Stripes! I decided to get out some washi tape that I never use and try to make an interesting background with my Oxide Inks.  I absolutely love the way it came out.  I made this card about a month or so ago and recently have seen a lot of other card makers doing this technique too.  It is so easy and a lot of fun! I highly suggest you give it a try! Be careful, as I had a bit of a bleed in the bottom right of my base. These feathers are a new purchase for me, they came in my very first Papertrey Ink order. I know, can you believe it??  I really love them a lot! I cut out multiple feathers and stacked them up to give the card a lot of dimension.

Please stop by Just Us Girls and check out the teams amazing cards as well! I would also like to thank Julia for being such a wonderful guest this month.

Take care, Nanc’

  11. How clever to use washi tape to mask your stripes here Nancy. Makes for an interesting background. Gorgeous ox colours and those feathers are fabulous. Love the simple sentiment.
