Background Basics: Random Stripe Stamp Set
Product ID : 2812
Background Basics: Random Stripe Tip Sheet :
1. The stripes are random. Take it a bit further and randomize the width of the strips by
using a masking technique to make them shorter.
2. Using two colors of ink, layer the stamps on top of each other. Where the stripes
overlap, a third color will be created.
3. The thickest stripes could serve as a home for small sentiment stamps. Stamp the
same sentiment repeatedly and let it become part of the background pattern.
3. The stripes can look like "static" and would be a good match for the news van in
"Special Delivery" or the television in "Polka Dot Parade #3".
4. Add a subtle design to die cut letters.
5. Take a large die cut and stamp half of the shape with a stripe pattern, leaving the
other half for an embellishment or a sentiment.
6. Offset your layering of one stamp strip over the other.
7. Stamp the stripes on the negative pieces created with the Cover Plate: Hortizonal
Stripe and Vertical Stripes. Either place them back in the Cover Plate design or use them
alone on a card.
8. Make a plaid pattern by stamping the strips in perpendicular directions from each other.
9. Use the smaller stamps to create a barcode.
10. Ink up a large strip with more than one color of ink to create a gradient of color.
Background Basics: Random Stripe will add unique style to your next project. The two large strip stamps work well alone to add just the right amount of interest to your project to subtly highlight your focal point. Follow your creativity a little further and you realize that this is far from a one trick pony. The magic happens when you layer the thick and thin stripes on top of each other. Two steps and you've got a multi-colored wonder that makes the most of your ink inventory.
