Spots and Stripes

Any of my comping friends reading this will immediately think about the series of competitions that Cadbury's ran last year - I'm sorry to disappoint you but these spots and stripes are a very different kind!

The spots and  stripes in question are those on one of my oldest and most loved sets of stamps, a Hero Arts set  that I must have had for ten years or more. And every time I use them the result seems to be fresh and different. Sometimes I colour them in in lots of bright colours, sometimes in one colour, sometimes I leave them white, sometimes I tessellate them all over the page, sometimes I  just use a single one, sometimes I  cut out the hearts and layer them..... they are just so versatile.

This time I just used two shades of green with them. Looking at the photo, I think my next task today is to go and slice the exclamation mark off my "Celebrate!" stamp because it looks a lot like "Celebratel" which makes no sense at all.... in fact my husband has just asked me why I've made a card for Cabletel *sigh*


I'm submitting this to the following challenges:

Less is More #110 - One Layer, Spots and Stripes

  5. Pretty card!
    Maybe you could just make a tiny cut to define the exclamation point.
    Hope you are having a great day!
