Remember the "love is..." comic? Well for me I get that hearts-fluttering-around-over-my-head feeling when I play with my distress inks. Didn't really have a plan for this card. Wanted to be trendy, thus the chevron strips. Wanted to be ombre, thus the distress inks.
Inked up a length of Neenah CS with the various colors, then die cut chevrons. Finally selected the ones I wanted to use together. Went from landscape to portrait. Got frustrated at how the chevrons had lives of their own as I was trying different layouts (afterthought - could have used some non-permanent adhesive...), thus the "offset" and "raised" discovery. Chevrons with a twist.
Just love this PTI sentiment. Another bday card for my stash.
I'm playing with Ranger's Distress Ink Celebration - used Squeezed Lemonade among others.
And with JayGee's Nook Challenge #24 and this fabby inspiration photo:
Notice the texture on that shower curtain? Thus my lightbulb moment to raise some of the chevrons for more texture/depth.
And over at the Classroom at Ellen Hutson there are 5 great challenges from 5 big names in cardmaking in honor of WCMD. Check them out if you haven't. This is for the the Trend Watch Challenge.
