Striped Borders


Here's another card using PTI's new "Distressed Stripes" stamp set.  I LOVE this set!  I found the inspiration for this pattern from a piece of patterned paper I found online but I have searched and searched for it so I could show you the comparison and I can't find it anywhere.  So, you'll just have to trust me that it looks as good, if not better than the printed paper!


Here's a closeup of the stripes.  The colors I used are PTI Hawaiian Shores, Terra Cotta Tile, Spring Moss, Palette Giverny Green & Orangerie & Jumbo Java VersaMagic and they are stamped on ivory paper.  Aren't those mini pom poms cute?  I ordered those from an etsy shop called Sugar Pink Boutique.  Be prepared if you click on that link because she has some CUTE stuff and you will want some! :)


Here's a closeup of the flowers on the Asian Fusion flowers.  I used small brown pearls on some of the flower blooms.  I like the extra little detail it adds.  I also used one of the Tea Dye Duo inks from PTI around the edge of the rustic white paper.


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you liked the card!
