Less Is More - Stripes - ONE LAYER

Well Mandi and Chrissie have done it again given us all some thing to really make us think , where as last week I sang with joy at the theme this week I was nearly banging my mojo against a brick wall trying to think of ideas but once I had seen what other Limetts had done the mojo started to play ball with the theme of stripes over Less Is More . Sorry but I can't remember which of the ladies helped my mojo so if you know who they are let me know so I can add there names and say thanks as they helped me get 3 cards done and all male theme ones .


card 1


Used my Houghie board to score the lines on this , so thanks to who ever did this , hope you don't mind me using this idea.
I highlighted the stripes with some chalk and then used some docraft stamps in the middle part which where coloured with PM's and Skaura pens.
----------------------------------------
Card 2

To get the stripes on this card I used a ruler and just coloured in the A with a Pm so it did nt look to flat and the stamp was from a docrafts goodie bag.
-------------------
card 3

Used the dad stamp again which again was coloured with Pm's
for the stripes on this card I used a man;s shirt stamp from Anita's , got this idea from the lady that did the card with a hippo on it. and yes again Pm's where used.
