Challenge Blog – LIM Show their Stripes

As I look around the BMB home, I can see a theme of stripes, we have them in the Bathroom, Bedroom, Backroom, Lounge…you get the picture. I am even wearing stripes trousers today šŸ™‚

So when I read the challenge over at the Less Is More Blog today, I thought to myself, I must have stripes on stamps somewhere… Having spent the morning cleaning out the craft area in the hope of finding stamps with stripes, I found 1 stamp and only that had 1 stripe on it…

So I have had to use that stamp, I had every intention of making a masculine card today for my Brother-In-Law’s Birthday but as I sat with a set of girly flower stamps in the other hand, I knew what I wanted to do…

BMB, BMB How does your Garden Grow?

By not fully inking my long thin stripe stamp – I could give it an earthy feel, perfect for showcasing flowers on it.
