Make It Monday #226: Creating With Stripes

I have been enjoying the idea of coloring the reverse side of embossed vellum - so I did the same on this card.  It did not work out exactly how it had on other cards using the same techniques.  I think it is because there wasn't much clear space left after embossing the super stripes stamp.  In the end I colored in the back and the front of the embossed vellum to achieve more color.

I really like the different shades of pink paired with black and white. The neutrals along with the clean lines really make your stripes "pop."
