This bedding set named Sally Blue is from Egyptian Peddler and I was drawn to the combination of this unusual blue and a buttery yellow in stripes and brocade.
I started with a scrapbook paper in two tones of yellow and placed strips of Eclipse paper over the stripes as a resist. Then I lightly brayered over the paper with Starry Starry Night (Whisper Ink Pad). I used the same to stamp diagonal stripes of decorative pattern. Then I used a scrolly larger stamp to create more decoration. Peeling off the Eclipse paper left me with this patterned paper. Neat huh?
I used it to wrap the inside and outside front of a base card and then turned back one corner to mimic a bedding coverlet. The stripes on the inside are rub-on stitching, the heart is a sticker and the three text blocks are Tim Holtz Adage Tickets on which I penned in a second line.
