LIM must have shares in the card companies cos their challenges mean that so many of my efforts end up in the bin!
And who thought of stripes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After discovering I don't have anything stripey in a way of stamp. In the end I've used a ruler, dunked it in the inkpad and stamped it but while lifting up I pulled it up so my lines are distressed.
Instead of using distress ink pads I've actually used stamping up inkpad So Saffron and Old Olive with a touch of Soft Suede and I used the foliage set from them too.
The sentiment is Penny Black, seeing has its nice and grungy it would make a decent mans card.
