Striped Patterns {FIF #150}

Friday, January 10, 2014

 
 
I had the idea to try stamping this pattern for awhile.  My first attempt {above} turned OK, but not great.  I wasn't happy, obviously, with where the stamped stripes didn't match up.  I decided rather than waste it, I'd cut it up and create a new pattern.
 
 
The center image was stamped three times, cut apart, and layered together.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
 
I almost forgot...It's FRIDAY!
