sassy stripes

We are playing with stripes at Seize the Birthday this week (courtesy of Vicki). I love stripes and normally I would use striped patterned paper (because I have a lot of it).  However, I had been wanting to try this technique from my friend Cheiron. Cheiron loves rainbows so decide to do rainbow alcohol inks in her honour. The stripes speak for themselves so kept the rest of the card clean and simple.

Hope you can join us! Please welcome our new Surprise Party Guest, Jenny!  Looking forward to see what Jenny creates during her time with us.  Be sure to give some love to her and the rest of the design team.

Hope you have a terrific day and a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by,
