Morning lovely crafters, 
I needed a card for a young man. Always tricky for me but the Less is More challenge of Stripes seemed like a good place to start. 

For this card I cut a rectangle in a piece of paper and sponged ink through to create the stripes. Then I spritzed with water and watched the ink spreading. I'd used mixed media paper so it worked beautifully. 
Also interesting as I didn't add any green ink, only teal.
The challenge is also One Layer which was fine except for the fact that the paper is slightly warped even after ironing. 
It almost looks like a birthday cake with candles...

Thanks for visiting, enjoy your day. x


  1. What a great technique and I guess one that would come out differently each time your tried it. Lovely result here. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. WOW! Fabulously grungey stripes - love it!


  3. This is wonderful Alison. Your spritzing on the ink stripes has given such an organic and arty look to the design and I love how your colours made the green. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

  4. Fabulous design. Love this, perfect for our challenge and for a guy too.
