Scored Stripes (Inkspirations 90)


It is time for another Inkspirations challenge! This time, it’s all about the colours. Separately, these colours are all ones that I love to use but together? This threw me for a huge loop!


If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll understand why I love the Simply Scored tool (I mean seriously, how easy was that box?). So I knew I wanted to play around a bit more and see what I could do with this tool. And here is what I came up with:



The card base is Chocolate Chip and is layered with Rich Razzleberry and then with a bit of Chocolate Chip designer series paper. When I started with this project I didn’t have a “stripe” theme in mind but looking at it finished, there certainly is a strip-motif!


The central panel is Rich Razzleberry layered with a piece of Pretty In Pink. This pink layer was scored with the Simply Scored tool to make a double lined frame. After scoring it, I sponged it to give it a bit more definition.


I then cut out three little striped butterflies using the Beautiful Wings embosslit and finished it off with some Rich Razzleberry satin ribbon and a wee tag with a bit of bling!


Ready to give it a try? Head on over to Inkspirations and play along with us. Check out the rest of the design team’s creations by visiting their blogs!
