WPlus9 Birthday Week 3 (Trend Watch), PTI Make It Monday #152 (Layering Dye & Pigment Inks), Little Tangles #31 (Monochromatic), One Layer Simplicity #2 (Can You Repeat That?)

A quick post before the renovating week takes off …

WPlus9 Bday 3, PTI MIM 152, LT 31, OLS 2

WPlus9 are having a month long celebration for their birthday … this is the third week and we have a trend watch (see board below) … I’m playing with stripes.  Papertrey’s Make It Monday‘s technique video is by Heather and covers layering different inks.  At Little Tangles, there’s a monochromatic challenge and as this is a one layer card, I’m joining in at One Layer Simplicity … where we’re using a repeat image.

I stamped the WPlus9 sentiment and masked it off.  The Papertrey horizontal stripes were stamped in white Brilliance ink and once they were dry, I stamped some Neat & Tangled stripes vertically using Memento inks, glittering over the final one.  As Darnell would say … QACAS!

Off to paint shutters!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    Another winner here, Anita!!!! This is perfectly and gorgeously CAS. There’s just something right about blue stripes, and you’ve done them absolute justice. Really love everything about this card; from the colors to the linen paper to the sentiment. From now on, I’m gonna start calling you Mary Poppins…practically perfect in every way! Have a great Monday. hugs

    This is so gorgeous. Your stamping is just absolutely perfect, and the look of those stripes is so modern and fresh. Once again, fab way to combine challenges.

    You are soooo creative! Stamping the horizontal stripes in white, then the vertical stripes in varying shades of bluer (on a delightfully textured paper) looks gorgeous! Love, love, love the clean & graphic design!

    I’m in total agreement with Hannelie – you are totally amazing!

    By the way…..calling it again…..winner, winner…

    And Darnell would say Anita ROCKS!! This is so CASlicious and QACAS and I predict more winners for your trophy wall!! Where do you buy that card stock, if you don’t mind me asking? You used it on my card and I love the eye/hand feel of it! Hugs, Darnell
