Purple Striped Flowers

Double D Lavender Lilac Purple
Retro Rubber Spring Flowers

The homework for Spring Card Camp 2 Day 2 was to create a card with stripes. Using Jennifer McGuire’s tutorial I used purple tape to create stripes in various shades of purple ink. Then I stamped the large flower from Just a Little by Lisa Hetrick (released July 2018) for Gina K Designs. Jennifer suggested stamping the image first in very light gray ink using the MISTI so you knew where to place your stripes. I did that on my disaster card (I might be able to salvage the back), so I knew where the image was going to be placed. I wanted a large birthday sentiment and this one from Birthday Essentials (released March 2018) by Newton’s Nook  just filled the bill.

  1. I love this. I like the stripes and the image and I think the sentiment being somewhat curved is great. It sets it all off in a special way. Great job my friend.

    1. Thanks Johanna. It was fun, and was pleased with how the sentiment worked the way I placed it.

    1. Thanks Lisa – make sure you mask on both sides of the stripe after the first one’s placed – that was what caused my disaster, at least I might be able to use the back of the panel.

  2. This is so gorgeous on so many levels. The intensity of color from bottom working up and then the simplicity of the individual elements working together makes a very striking effect. Camp is a very good place for you.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. I never got to go to camp when I was a kid, so I figured it was time. This is definitely my kind of camp.

  3. Purple is my favorite color too and I love this technique! (Don’t you just love Jennifer’s videos … she’s so easy to listen to and follow). I’ll have to give this a go … great job!! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Double D ‘Lavenders~Lilacs~Purples’ challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.

  4. Your stripes in the corner look great! Love the focal image you chose; those wispy leaves pointing to your greeting really give your design a great flow.

    1. Thanks Lisa. I thought that image would work perfectly with stripes and I wanted a large sentiment and finding one that didn’t have to be placed perfectly was a plus.

  5. Great stripes, Judy, and love the image. I did chuckle about the disaster card as I’ve had many of those. Enjoy your card camp and can’t wait to see more of your samples.

  6. This is a very pretty image and the treatment with the stripes is really lovely. Thanks for joining in with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.

  7. Beautiful – love the stripes and the colour palette, so much purple in the gallery this time which I LOVE. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
