Show your Stripes - and Thank You

This week Simon Says challenges us to Show some Stripes. Quite by chance I received on Tuesday, the Tim Holtz Retro Grunge paperstack which has lots of funky patterns including stripes. 

It's taken me a while, though to decide what to do for this challenge. 

In the end, I covered a piece of square chip with some of the stripey paper - I chose the green version - and stamped two of the Wendy flower that is lately my favourite flower stamp! on grungepaper. I coloured it with wild honey and then spritzed it with a home made perfect pearl (copper) and reinker (spiced marmalade) combination and the leaves with Kiwi perfect pearl.

Fnished it off with some idea-ology.

I want to say a BIG $50 thank you to Simon Says -or the random generator anyhow - for picking my tag from last week for their prize!!  It may surprise you to hear that I managed to choose some goodies for my prize, from their online store and am now eagerly waiting the postman (again!)

Go and check out the other stripey art on show, one of which will get a $50 prize again this week.

Whilst I am thanking people, I received a OWOH door prize this week from Pia ( so thanks to Pia too.
