Paper Maniac Thursday- Create Argyle Patterned Paper

Thursday, January 7, 2010

Hello there! It's Paper Maniac day on my blog. I received this stamp a few months ago and thought it was really cool, but I wasn't sure what to do with it. The stamp itself is five text diamonds. I thought I would create a background with it, but then I had the idea to make it an argyle background! To achieve this, I stamped the diamonds on the card stock to create a background and then I drew lines with a black marker right through the diamonds. I then made a little dot where the lines intersect. I think this makes a great masculine card. The sentiment was computer generated using Microsoft Word.
Now that this stamp has seen ink, the ideas are flowing. I'd like to try and make a really girly print using pinks and purples. Thanks for visiting today!!!
