I can't believe it is nearly the end of January. I also can't believe I'm still trying to recover from this horrid virus that has been sweeping the country. I'm pretty much over it now but it has left me feeling very tired which is why my blogging has been slow lately.
Anyway, I did finally manage to get into the craft room to play with this lovely stamp set by Concord and 9th called Stripe builder from The Foiled Fox. You must know by now how much I am enjoying playing with stripes, and these lovely wide stripes are just fab.
I could have chosen any colour but I really love the combination of mocha and black.
I think to get a solid inked stripe pigment ink or Versafine works well, but as I didn't have any of these in the colour I wanted I have used Adirondack dye based ink instead in Mushroom. I quite like the slightly mottled effect and think it gives it a weathered look.
The background flourish is by Stampin Up, as is the punched heart. And the Valentine sentiment is by Hero Arts.
Well that's it for now. Don't forget to hop over to The Foiled Fox online store and blog for fab inspiration!
I'll be back soon hopefully in between resting x
