Stretch your Stamps - Day 4, card 1

Today's class focussed on using graphic stamps in different ways.  One way is to repeat the same element over and over to create a background, or what they called "faux patterned paper".
The pale blue mat is not a mat at all!  I coloured some white cardstock with the Hero Arts Soft Pool ink, then cut very thin strips that I adhered right up against the stamped panel - same look as a mat, less paper  used :)  I'll be submitting this card to CASual Fridays "Let's strip" challenge

    1. Oh, you are very kind, thankyou. No, I'm not a member of a design team - I have applied to a few, though.
