Lined background

While at water aerobics, I noticed a mural on the wall of the rec center.  Not only did I like the technique, it seemed like something I could do myself.  So, I gave it a try on this ATC.
I loved the look of it, so I thought I would try it on something bigger, like a card.  Unfortunately, I messed up stamping the sentiment, so I ruined the clean single layer look I was going for.  At least I was able to cover it up.

Would you know it was a cover up if I didn't tell you?  Yeah, probably.  The stamp set is from a•muse studio.  It's a nice way to say "Thank you" without using those exact words.
