Stripe of Color

Sometimes it's fun to add a really bright stripe of color to your cards.  It makes such a striking statement against the white background don't you think?

Here's how I did it...

I started out by placing 2 pieces of washi tape on my card panel.  I used the grid ruler to make sure they were straight.

Next I took my sponge daubers and an assortment of Memento Dye Inks and added some here and there.

For this card I am using New Sprout (green); Love Letter (red), Angel Pink and Cantaloupe which corresponds to this month's challenge colors over at House of Cards July Challenge.

Next I stamped a bit of text over the stripe using Grey Flannel ink.

I then removed the tape, stamped my main image and a sentiment; edged the panel using Grey Flannel then mounted it on the pink card base.

Oh so easy with amazing results every time!  The best part of it is you can change the colors to match your theme, a season, holiday, etc.
