Flowers & Stripes

I've been wanting to play with this color combination for awhile, and today's the day!

Flowers & Stripes

supplies: white and black card stock, Impression Obsession Painted Stripes cling stamp, Wplus9 You Equals Kind clear stamps, Simon's inks: Teeny Bikini, Rosie Cheeks, Duckling, Melon, JellyBean, and Green Apple, Altenew Flower Arrangement die, Stitched Rectangles die, sequins to match

This IO cling combines brush strokes into a striped background, but inking it in different colors like this, it would have been more efficient to use just a brush stroke stamp, as I masked and stamped each color separately.  I do love these colors together, though.  After I had inked my background, I used the same colors to make my flowers, adding a black dotted center to them to balance out my black sentiment die.  

We've had all kinds of weather here today - torrential downpours followed by sunshine followed by clouds. Hope you're enjoying your day whether you're in or out!
