MAKING PLAID for Frosted Designs and other challenges

Hubby is sleeping in today we didn't get to bed until after 2:00 am. We saw Sherlock Holmes last night. I loved the scenery and costumes and the plot was fun, but hubby would have rathered we see Clash of the Titans, but he was sweet enough to let me choose! When I got home I was wired to play and made this card for Frosted Designs! I have even showed you how to make plaid when you just don't have it! LOL! Yup I am still using limited supplies! Have a great weekend everyone! Enjoy the challenges today for plaid and polka dots from Frosted Designs, and a touch of spring from Stamp Something Random!

Take a piece of paper and several scraps of thin pieces and line them randomly in a vertical pattern on your card stock. I then used SPOTS and tapped color all over the card stock. Next take random width strips and lie them across your card stock horizontally. Do the same with the ink spots and then remove all the strips VOILA! You have plaid DSP!
