Warm Thoughts

It's Wednesday which means it's time an extra post for the OLW challenge over at Styles Ink.  This weeks theme is stripes and I have so many ideas, I may just have to have more than one go.  I just had to put this one to paper though - mainly because the stamps set was, as yet un-inked, and we can't have that, can we?



I have to say, if you are having difficulty with a style that you like, find a challenge blog that fits that style and really force yourself to put something together each week, practice really does make perfect - or at least acceptable, and after five or so challenges I actually find myself making one layer cards without being prompted - I call that success.

I first stamped the zig-zag stripe twice to form the road, added the scooter and then made a mask of the front of the scooter so that the Eiffel tower would appear to be in the background.  Obviously, the scooter HAD to be red - do they come in other colours?  The sentiment balances the card.

So there you have it, a one layer card featuring stripes, I hope you like it.  All the supplies necessary to make this card are available from Amuse Studio.

Supplies:
Stamps: ooh la la!, mad for plaids
Paper: sugar
Ink: memento black tuxedo
Misc: koh-i-noor colored pencils
