Create stripes using alcohol markers

Hello crafty friends,

Another weekend is here. Can you believe how quickly 2016 is coming to an end? I am yet to absorb all of this. But hey, weekend is here and it's card time!

I had very recently created a card panel using only alcohol markers, and this time, I thought it would be a great way to create some stripes. So, I took 3 alcohol markers (Touchnew markers) and using a scale and broad tip of the marker, I created stripes. No particular pattern, just some thick and thin lines.

I then coloured the upper white portion with gesso, simply because it was handy. You can use a black card stock for this purpose if you wanted to. It will give the same effect. Now, I stamped and embossed some constellations from Lawn Fawn "Upon a Star"stamp set. And coloured the 2 critters using the same alcohol markers.

Arranged everything and within 10 min, my card was done and I am honestly pleased with its modern and simple look. I hope you like my attempt.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
