Stripes


I was checking out the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge.. found out this weeks theme is stripes.. should have been working on something else... but the ideas flew this way.  I've used all Studio 490 stamps.  This is an ATC... I started with a Ranger atc sticky back canvas blank (white), layed on some strips of tissue tape (holiday so the tape was narrower), sprayed on butterscotch color wash, blotted it, removed the tape and sprayed on sail boat blue color wash.  The bubbles background was stamped with snow cap paint dabber and then the dots were made using sequin ribbon as a stencil, dried with a heat tool.  The red horizontal lines were made by just pressing the edge of the maroon Archival ink pad directly on the canvas.  Dare to be Unique was stamped with Archival ink jet black... I first stamped it on the background but it didn't stand out enough so I went over the area with white paint dabber, dried it, masked off a narrow strip at the bottom and sprayed it with the sail boat blue.  The gentleman was stamped on grungepaper with jet black plus 2 extra hats. Cut out the whole guy, one whole hat, and one hat band.  Added color with Distress Inks (scattered straw, brushed corduroy, barn red) and layered the hat parts up with foam mounting tape.  "Seriously" was stamped on manilla card, cut out, and sponged around the edge with shabby shutters.  Two Ideology mini paper clips to finish it up.
