RIC#13 - House of Holland

The inspiration photo for Runway Inspired Challenge #13 is this:

Bit of a problem there - I have no stamps or paper with a dogtooth pattern, so I just went for a checked theme.  This abstract grungy stamp always reminds me of a skimpy dress, so that's what it is today!

I stamped it onto glossy card in Versafine Onyx Black then coloured it roughly with Tombow pens to keep the grungy feel.  I stamped Hello lightly onto textured card, so that the texture would show through.  Here's a close-up:

Grungy stamp - J2-643 Stampers Anonymous
Hello stamp - from Woodware FRCL069 Large & Small Greetings
Card Candi - Craftwork cards (coloured with Tombows to match)
Black/white checked ribbon


  1. You're right- that image does resemble a dress! I really like the texture showing through behind your sentiment- it actually makes the letters look like they have a very small houndstooth pattern. Thanks for playing along with the Runway Inspired Challenge!

  2. Wow! I'd have been utterly stumped with that one! Full marks to you though- inspired use of that stamp. Have to say though, your outfit looks way better than the model's!!!
