1st Wall Border Attempt

Happy Tuesday!

Hope you are all enjoying the day. It is HOT and muggy here in Missouri - ugh!!! Humidity has to be way up there, as well!

Okay, I'm pretty sure that none of my stampin' peeps are opinionated, but I need an opinion. the photo above is my 1st homemade wall border attempt. I have a wall in my kitchen that is painted a khaki color on the top, and a spicy orange/rust on the bottom. I need 'something' to divide the line where the two colors meet. I am pretty much DONE forever with wallpaper and borders, so have been trying to come up with some stamping ideas (thank heaven for stamp-a-ma-jigs!). The stamp used here is an Inkadinkado Flourish.

I'm going to try a few out on my readers today and tomorrow, so please bear with me! I've never stamped on walls before, and although the thought is exciting, it's also a bit frightening! I really need some opinions before I dive in!
(Pardon my collection of TAC stamps in the background - I forgot to crop!!!)

Thanks for your help!!!

I love flourishes and think it would be lovely on a wall!

Dawn said...

I love the flourish for sure, I would probably make it a bold color like a warm green to bring contrast to the divide.
Did you have a great weekend?
Loved the picture Stef posted of all of you.

Ooh Patti, this is so pretty and what a great idea!
I'm with you 100% about wallpaper, I think every one of our walls is painted, life's too short for stripping wallpaper!

Sounds like a lot of work. Wouldn't stenciling be less work?
Just a thought.
