Happy Father's Day Stripes

I love the cover-a-card stamps from Impression Obsession!!  I recently purchased the Diagonal Lines stamp and although I have a bunch of ideas of different ways to use it, this is what a moment of experimenting with the stamp led me to make the other day...
 I masked, stamped and clear embossed just a handful of the card covering diagonal lines.  Then I cut 1/4"wide pieces of Tim Holtz distress papers in different shades of blue and adhered them between the black diagonals.  I die cut a circle and stamped the sentiment on the card.  Popped up the panel on the card.  Here's a close up, you can see the shininess of the stamped lines...an added textural "thing"...
 Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
