Ever since I saw Kristina Werner’s wonderful plaid stamping card here I’ve been wanting to try this technique. I got my chance today when I unpacked some new goodies I’d ordered from WPlus9 and Papertrey Ink. I used two of the stripes from the WPlus9 Country Charm set and two from Papertrey Ink’s Super Stripes set to create this plaid. I’m a recent convert to photopolymer stamps, and have to say that this technique really demonstrates the benefits of good quality clear stamps. I was able to line all the stripes up without a stamp-a-ma-jig in sight ;).
Aren’t the colours in this photo simply gorgeous? For the inks I used Stampin Up Tangerine Tango, Crisp Cantaloupe, Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzazz. The mood board reminded me of the beautiful cut roses my Mum gave me yesterday fresh from her garden. I placed them in one of my vases from a favourite local store, Bison Ceramics.
And here’s a photo of the card in progress with the masking still attached (I used extra large sticky-notes). I’ll keep practising the technique – it’s quite addictive!
Thanks for looking!
