CCM 133 Stripes

Welcome to another Crafty Cardmakers challenge. For the next couple of weeks we would love to see your projects with stripes. 133 Stripes

My stripes are from Basic Grey’s Capella papers.

My image is Thomas from Sugar Nellie’s Adorables range. I coloured him with copics. My sentiment was a freebie with a magazine and the little train I made myself with a downloaded colouring page, which I coloured on the pc, and then printed onto inkjet printable shrink plastic and shrunk.

Apologies for the slight blurring, particularly on the image, but for some reason this particular image just didn’t like being photographed. I wonder if it’s because it had so much line art detail in it, masses of tiny dots to indicate shade? Whatever the reason I couldn’t get it any clearer, but with the naked eye and in real life it looks fine.
