Wow, this has been a busy time at Papertrey Ink.
Each day of the Anniversary Celebrations has seen a card
challenge issued and I've tried to play along with a few.
Stripes were on the menu today and I cased Nichole Heady's card (here)
to create a gingham effect. She used two new cover plates to make masks
and then sprayed a colour mist over the vertical and horizontal stripes.
I used a different method to create my stripes, and even though it took
some time, I really like the effect. Each of my "stripes" are 3/8" wide. I placed
washi tape on either side of the area that I wanted to colour and then used
an ink blending tool with Aqua Mist ink. After completing the vertical stripes,
I used the same process to make the horizontal stripes.

The sentiment (Framed Out #1) was stamped with VersaMark ink and then
Clear Embossing Powder was applied. The blending tool was used to add
Berry Sorbet Ink. The sentiment really stands out against the coloured background.
