Inky Paw's Challenge 154 - Use Stripes

 Hello Inky Paws Fans!

We are at the halfway point of this current challenge.

For my take on the challenge, I went a bit outside of the box.

I made underwater stripes!

This is way easier than you think.

I used the Hills and Grass Stencil and

Prize Ribbon, Salty Ocean, and Salvage Patina Distress Ink.

Stencil are so much fun! I just love to sit down and ink them in

different ways to see what I can come up with.

I started at the top of my card front using Prize Ribbon.

Please note: I was not paying attention and started by using the stencil upside down.

Not wanting to start over I just rolled with it.

Once that section was inked, I used Salty Ocean ink to clean up the edges.

Next , I flipped the stencil over to cover up what I inked and create the white layer.

Another note: I used blue tape to cover the bottom ”grass” portion of the stencil.

I inked up a small top edge of Salvage Patina then I flipped

the stencil again and inked up a bottom edge of the strip.

Flipping the stencil once more I used the Salty Ocean ink to clean up the edges of the stripe.

I repeated the process till I got to the bottom of the card front

and finished the bottom with Prize Ribbon Ink again

To Finish the card front, I sprayed water on the ink and let the ink migrate

to those great droplets of texture, we all love.

While the background was driving, I stamped and inked up my Scuba Newton Stamp Set.

I got a whole lot of blue going on, so I used colors that would stand out.

With the background now dry, my sentiments got stamped directly on.

To finish my card, I Placed Scuba Newton on the card front with fun foam,

added on some fishes and created a card base.


This completes my take on our stripe theme
