Hi stampers! Happy Tuesday! It's time for another fun challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments! This week is another one of my ideas.....herringbone! You can check out a great tutorial on Splitcoast for some instructions.
I have to say I hadn't done this before the challenge but I can't wait to do it again! It was easy and fun and I love the way it looks! I had a hard time narrowing down ideas for what DSP I wanted to use but finally settled on the Halloween DSP since I love it and it's the next holiday coming up. Now, I didn't use the same patterns in all four sections like the tutorial did but I like how mine came out!!!! What do you think?
Stamps: Googly ghouls, teeny tiny wishes
Paper: Very vanilla, basic black, tangerine tango, more mustard, howlstooth & scaringbone DSP
Ink: Staz-on black, basic gray, more mustard
Accessories: Window frames framelits, paper piercing pack, googlies
I cut my strips at 3/8" and tried to use a variety of patterns. I think this would be really fun for a Christmas card too! I do want to note that for this project I used the "outies" when I pierced my paper meaning that I actually used the back of what I pierced. I do that when I want a little more interest and texture and think it just gives this project that extra something.
Now, head on over to HSS and see what the other girls have created then play along with us! I can't wait to see what you make!
