A Passion for Plaid

Hello everyone, this is Dana with my last entry as a Featured Stamper. I've whipped up a little gift set for a friend who lend me a helping hand over the last few weeks and I just wanted to show my appreciation and gratitude.

Plaid seems to be a major trend at the moment and I wanted to incorporate that into my project. However, I'm too impatiened to stamp it *perfectly* ;-) So, instead of having accurate grids I simply stamped random lines and even added some distressing to the lines with an ordinary eraser. I think it adds a fresh, modern look to the plaid theme, don't you?

Thank you for looking and thanks again to Kate and Aimes for having me! It was so exciting to see my work featured here :)
