Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop

This month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop challenge is to feature something tilted.

The tilt is made with the back of the stripe stamp from Background Basics: Retro flanked by the striped side. The tag is from Tags for Spring.

The detail is made with the cast offs from cutting down the mat which had some of the striped stamping on it, so I tied three of them together in two places with PTI Rustic Twine.

Finally, after many years of punching out a shape and then stamping on it, I had an epiphany many of you probably already had. Stamp first, then punch. (Visualize face palm).

Materials:
PTI cardstock: Vintage Cream (cardbase), Kraft
Stamps: Background Basics: Retro, Tags for Spring.
Ink: Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Misc. PTI rustic twine.
