Inky Paws Challenge #205 - Use Stripes Challenge
Such a fun challenge this time!! I'll admit I went a little rogue and my use of stripes in my card is a bit outside the box... definitely a loose interpretation of the challenge cue.

My stripes in my card are the beautiful birch trees all lined up in a row... like stripes. I love how this turned out! Just how I envisioned. The birch tree dies are from the Forest Scene Builder Die Set. I die cut three of each tree but only ended up using five trees for my background. The snowy hill was die cut using the stitched hill die from the Land Border Die Set

I created the background by ink smooshing Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks on a piece of Stampers Select White Card Stock from Papertrey Ink that was cut down to a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card front. I dried the background and added some white acrylic paint splatters. I die cut the background using the large postage stamp die from the Framework Die Set. I then blended some Black Soot Distress Oxide ink around the edges. Adhered the background to a white A2 card base and adhered the trees and the snowy hill to the background.

I stamped the sentiment on the snowy hill using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also stamped the sweet snowman and pup from the Holiday Heights Stamp Set  using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored up the snowman and pup with some Copic Markers.  Here's a quick list of the Copic Markers I used:

Snowman ~ C00, C1, C3
Snowman's Nose ~ YR21, YR15, YR27
Snowman's Buttons ~ N0, N3, N5
Snowman's Hat ~ R20, R14, R27, N0, N1, N3, N5
Snowman's Scarf ~ YG11, G14, R20, R14, R27
Dog ~ E51, E55, E57
Dog's Scarf ~ B000, B91, B93, B97, B99
Birch Trees ~ N3

Once I was done coloring, I die cut the snowman and pup using the coordinating dies from the Holiday Heights Die Set. To finish off the card, I popped up the snowman and pup with lots of foam tape.

Now it's your turn to get your paws inky with your Newton's Nook Designs products and create a project Using Stripes as the theme. Be sure to link up to the Inky Paws Challenge! Can't wait to see your projects!
