Pattern Stripes Leads the Way!



Preview
Let the new Wood Block Stamp, Pattern Stripes, lead the way!  I found I really LOVE this stamp.  When you stamp it, you see hints of words and patterns, but they seem to fade into the mist.  It's this kind of a stamp that is perfect for a background.  The pattern develops depth, but doesn't take away from anything else, UNLESS you want to draw the eye to the pattern.  You can do so much with a background stamp like this.
Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe (I tried some double stamping on this background, but it may have to be in larger increments so it doesn't blend into the previous stamping.  I think it's fantastic stamped once as below.

You can die cut into any part of your paper to create something just a little different.
