RIC #43

I'm entering another first-time-for-me challenge today.  I've seen the Runway Inspired Challenge that others have done but never tried one myself.  Unfortunately my brain does not get inspired by these things usually but I definitely had an idea for this one.

I recently bought Background Basics: Super Stripes from Papertrey Ink and thought I would put them to good use.

I created my own plaid to mimic the shirt, leaving a white edge like in the photo.  I can tell you I know now why I'm not a stamper - because I'm not much of a stamper.  To get the lines straight and the ink smooth was a harrowing process to say the least.  Then I struggled with what to do for a sentiment.  I thought this one from Hero Arts, embossed in white, would do the trick.  I cut the word bubble with my Cricut.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. Bobby, I hear you on the dramas of stamping stripes! Getting clearly stamped, straight lines is hard work, LOL! Your efforts were worth it, your card is gorgeous!

  2. Love the clean lines of your card - I am so challenged stamping like this and in awe when I see it done successfully!

  3. Bobby this is wonderful. I know your pain when it comes to stamping a straight line. It sure is a challenge. Your card turned out great.

  4. What a great take on the sketch!! You did a fabulous job with your black and yellow plaid!

  5. Love the CAS of your card! Thanks for joining us at Runway Inspired Challenge!
