I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #21 - Stripes

Today it's the start of a new challenge over on I ♥ Promarkers.  This week is challenge #21 which is sponsored by Letraset and we are asked to use stripes on our projects.

This week you are free to use your own choice of image, layout and colours, just make sure you have some stripes on your project somewhere! 

For my DT card I decided to use some stripey papers in these lovely shades of pink and brown - one of my all time favourite colour combos.  The edging strips were punched with a Martha Stewart border punch (the darker strip is actually a brown/bronze pearly card, but for some reason it looks black on the picture). 

This is a magnolia stamp from Art Cure which I've had since I first began working with rubber stamps.  It makes a great backround but is also quite striking given 'centre stage' on a card. The image was coloured (of course) with Promarkers and cut out, leaving a tiny white border all around, then attached with silicone glue.  The oval mattes were actually left over from another card I created recently, so I was very pleased to be able to use up some of the bits and pieces off my desk!

I hope you've enjoyed your visit to my blog today, I really enjoy writing it and appreciate all my visitors taking the time to drop by.  Do have a go at this week's challenge, you've got nothing to lose and you might just be the lucky winner of the great prize from Letraset this week - someone has to win!!
