Single Layer with Painter's Tape Technique

My club girls were wanting to try the Painter's Tape technique, and I came across a single layer challenge (which is always quite a challenge for me), and a sketch that worked great with it, (although I am now too late to share with both of those challenges, as well as the colour challenge I used... oops!). I used the tape with Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding, and then while the tape was still on the card, I stamped the Chevron background stamp in Smoky Slate. Then I removed the tape, stamped the sentiment from Sale-a-Bration's See Ya Later set, and some Spiral Spins accents. Then a Basic Metal Button, a retired Calypso Coral button and an Old Olive Candy Dot to embellish, without taking away from the single layer aspect.

Challenges I used:

Clean & Simple Stamping - (see sketch below)
Dynamic Duos - (see palette below)
SUO Challenges - No Layers
Inspired By - (see image below)
Just Add Ink - Just Add Stripes
Pile It On - Stripes and/or Dots
Crafty Cardmakers - This is a man's world
Ruby's Rainbow - Spots and Stripes
