Simple Stripes

My post for today's Monday Montage Blog Hop is all about cool stuff.  To start I have black watercolored stripes on Shimmer White Paper.  I made them by using an Aqua Painter, Momento Ink Refill, and the Stripes Stencil.  To easily make great looking stripes try using a stencil as a guide.  The stencil kept my stripes straight and fairly evenly spaced yet I still have that hand painted/not so perfect look.

Filling the card front I have arranged a bouquet of teal and aqua Botanical Builder Framelit flowers along with a Botanical Jewel and Basic Rhinestones.  Giving the card a sweet style I used an image from the Suite Sayings stamp set on Vellum Card Stock and a Basic Black Bakers Twine bow to tie it all up.
