Create your own Plaid | VIDEO | Natalie Elphinstone

Hi friends!
As Christmas draws quickly upon us and there is much to do I wonder if you've finished making your cards yet? I wanted to inspire you today with some new techniques to try with one of your favourite classic Neat and Tangled stamp sets - Art Deco.

The Art Deco stamp set isn't an overtly Christmas set, but it does have some sentiment options to match the holiday season, and it's such a classic design that it really works well for so many different themes. A worthwhile investment stamp if you ask me!

I wanted to use the main grid design background image as a starting point, and then use the large square block to create the appearance of a plaid pattern. Plaid is such a great holiday pattern don't you think? I love it most at this time of year!
I tried out two different versions in some reasonably traditional Christmas colour schemes and I can't decide which one I like best!

I filmed the whole thing so you can watch my process. Now, like all my videos I try to keep it 'real life' - which means I start the camera rolling with an idea in my head and I literally just make it before your eyes. I don't edit out the mistakes, I simply roll with it and let you see how I then deal with it. So forgive me if I don't get 'perfect' results every time, but I kinda like it when the finished product looks slightly rough and rustic - I think it adds to the handmade charm of it.


I'd love to try out these techniques with a whole bunch of other colours too. What colours would you choose to use next?
