My first project uses the new Brushstrokes stamp (#138952 wood). And instead of basic stripes, I decided to make a plaid, or gingham (for those of us old enough to remember what gingham is!) background.
Here's how I did it:
First, using the lighter shade, stamp in one direction. Here I used Soft Sky. One of the things I really like about the Brushstroke stamp is that the lines aren't solid, so it has a very watercolor look.
That was so much fun that I decided to try it with pink! I used Pink Pirouette one way and Blushing Bride the other way.
And here are the cards I made from them.....
