My Time To Craft 'Stripes' Challenge

Hello all.

It's Saturday so that means it is time for another challenge at My Time To Craft and this week we are looking for 'Stripes' on your projects. 

I did something very different (for me anyway) with this card.  I started by printing my sentiment and then cutting the piece of white (it really is white and I am not sure why it looks blue) card to 14.5 cm's square, next I took some micropore tape (that is the stuff you use to hold a bandage or gauze in place) and taped it to my craft mat. Using my blending tool and some Victorian Velvet Distress Ink I set about creating my stripes. Using the grid lines on my mat I placed micropore across my card on every centimetre line and used this as the bottom guide and then placed another piece about 0.5 cm's above thus giving me a section to ink. I continued across the card moving my micropore every centimetre until I got this effect, you can see some of the edges are a little jagged that is where I didn't change the tape soon enough and it began to bleed. This was a fun card to make, I added the frame cut on my Silhouette just to finish it off.

Loving your CAS card, Kim, what a great sentiment! The stripes look fantastic, it must have taken an age to do them, but well worth it!!
