SweetStamps- Stripes

The SweetStamps challenge for this week is Stripes
 I added color to the background using Ranger Distress Inks.  The inks were tapped onto the craft mat and spritzed with water.  I dragged/ran the cardstock through the color- each color was dried with a heat gun before I applied the next color.
 I added the 'stripes' with a stamp and brown Distress ink. I also sponged the edges of the card with Brown Distress ink, in an attempt to add stripes with the Rounded Square stencil.
  The 'buck' head is from the On the Hunt set of Piccolo accents an is embossed with Enamel EP. I used Mermaid Tears on the top and Brownstone on the body. I add the Enamel Adhesive to the Buck head and emboss it in a coffee filter.


The inks I used are Ranger Distress Inks Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Brushed Burlap.







I hope you will join in with the STRIPES challenge this week found HERE.
