HELLO THERE:

  • Welcome to Kiss My Tulle, where the weddings are big but the budgets are small. I'm Cris Stone and I live in San Antonio, Texas (by way of Salcha, Alaska) with my new husband (The Boy), our baby girl (Melanie), puppy (Hank), and cat (Caira).

    I'm excited to share my ideas on creating the wedding of your dreams on an affordable budget.

I honestly think it looks great. No one is going to notice the little imperfections but you.

I'm thinking a more matte pink would help. But, for the errant paint, get your nail polish remover out and something to scrape with. The edges of the pink can be imperfect, that's ok, it will only add to the charm.

Use a razor blade like this (http://bit.ly/z5MwNf) and keep the blade parallel to the stripe. You'll clean the excess off and keep the line straight.

Maybe it's just me but I think your plate looks pretty cool! The uneven lines give it character :-)

what do you mean! i think it looks good! and yeah, use a razor if you need to straighten them out, or the edge of a ruler

Something that I've heard works for painting walls with contrasting stripes is after you paint the walls whatever color you want the wall to be before you put the contrast stripe color on (but obviously after you make your tape lines) you go over the area you want striped with the base wall color. Then after that dries you do a coat of the contrast color. This is supposed to help keep the paint from running under the tape and making your lines funky because whatever paint does run under the tape lines is the base color.

Disclaimer: I have never tried this, but it's supposed to work awesomely.
