What is it to "spatula stripe" an icing bag?

Sheila - from Bronx, NY

Spatula striping produces two-tone and realistic pastel tones in flowers and figure piping. It is done with pastel-colored icing, striped inside the decorating bag with a spatula. After striping, the bag is filled with white icing or another shade of the same color as the striping. The result is decorations with soft contrasts.
