I used the Candy Stripe Background in a feminine and masculine way. For the feminine side, I started with a solid piece of pink cardstock and "built" dimension by applying a mix of distress stain in white and vintage photo distress ink. Then I stamped the Candy Stripe Background and embossed it in old. I distressed the edges and adhered the panel to a kraft card base, topped it with a luscious May Arts Silk Bow and a sentiment from Market Street's Simple Salutations set.
I loved the Tuesday Trigger image over at Moxie Fab World. It helped me with the not only the colors on this card but I picked up on the woodgrain (using stripes) and the general mood as well.
Candy Stripe in a masculine way. The background was stamped in a plaid fashion, using a mix of two blues and a grey. I added a large sentiment from Great Big Greetings and finished wish a simple ribbon treatment of May Arts grey faux canvas that was stapled to hold it in place.
I'll get to guest one more time over at Market Street this month, and look forward to showing you more with these sets.
