I've come to realise that there are quite a few things "I don't do". I don't do men's cards, I don't do bright colours, I don't do buttons, ribbon or polka dots - and I don't do STRIPES!
I wasn't overly enthused this morning then when I checked the Less is More challenge, cause STRIPES it is (and it's one layer week to boot!).
Well I have to say, I surprised myself and this card is one of the quickest I've ever made.
I don't have any stripey stamps so quickly realised I'd have to create my own. I inked through a heart diecut with Tattered Rose DI, then inked my 'subtle stripes' by inking along the edge of a piece of card with Victorian Velvet DI.
A scrap of lace and a large pearl finishes it off.
It looks a bit bare without a sentiment but I've left one off meantime. It's a bit too feminine to give to a man for valentines so I'll probably use it for a birthday or mother's day.
Thanks for visiting, hope you're all having a lovely weekend.
