SDC232-Spots and Stripes

Time again for the SDC232. Sam is our hostess this week and she wants to see Spots and Stripes.  Here's what she said about her challenge:

 "I love anything spotty or with stripes and I also love stripes but the two can be difficult to combine. So my challenge for you this week is to use Spots and Stripes together in your creations, Have fun"

I borrowed an idea from Claudine and made a couple of bookmarks. I will be using them on Flood The Streets With Art day on the Friday after Thanksgiving. I will abandon them somewhere and hope they find a good home with someone who likes to read! 

I used Color Burst to color my base, then came back in with two different red Distress Inks for my Spots and Stripes. I then added some additional circles (spots!) with a lid and then with paint on the wooden end of a paint brush. I used Magda's Mr. Owl and Roc's Scalloped Lace Border which I alternated Spots and Stripes on. I also sewed around the border of the bookmark.

These are fabulous Sue, I love your take on this week's challenge. What a great idea to abandon art around town too. Someone is going to be very happy to find these. Thank you for joining us this week at Stampotique.
