Stripes


Created for MMM whre the theme is stripes or polka dots. I choose stripes. The background was created using Distress Inks in Peeled paint and Vintage Photo. This was then stamped (in Walnut Stain) with a crackle stamp, scratches stamp and a third background stamp to create the stripes. Collage image added and text which was sponged to match.
