I almost always use a sketch for my inspiration when I make cards, but this time I used a real life object that I set out in my home every Fall. An inexpensive table runner I got at Target that has a really vibrant orange and red plaid pattern.
Every time I pass by that table, I am drawn to those colors and patterns. I decided to practice making something similar using my Waltzingmouse Stamps Pic-nic Patterns stamp set.
It has two different sizes of plaid strips in it, and they are LONG. So easy to stamp up a whole piece of cardstock. I used Orange Zest cardstock and Cranberry AMuse pigment ink with the smallest width plaid strip. let it dry and then stamped the largest rose three times from Waltzingmouse stamps Roses in Bloom in French Roast AMuse pigment ink and clear embossed them.
That brown really pops against the plaid background. A little different rose than usual, don't you think?
