CCC #007: Chevrons
It's another month (Can you believe it's September???) and that means another group challenge from Catherine and Cathy Create! This month the challenge is something near and dear to my heart... Chevrons! :) And since the 1st happens to fall on a Sunday, I decided to make my challenge submission this week's Star-to-Finish Sunday card. So I filmed the video but then... Guess what? It was too long - Again! (Feel free to roll your eyes at me.) I really need to work on getting back to basics and making simpler and more accessible projects. My hubby said recently that I'm having a crafting identity crisis, and I think he totally hit the nail on the head! I hate that I've been so absent from YouTube lately, and haven't been sticking to my regular schedule. I'm trying to get back onto it, and I appreciate your sticking with me!
Anyway, on to my chevron card...
I used a really simple and super on-trend ombre inking technique on the Positively Chevron background stamp. Just use three colors of ink to ink up your background stamp, mist it lightly with water to help the colors blend, and stamp! And I decided to fancy things up a little bit more and make this a window card with a fun "floating" sentiment banner.
See how there's a piece of Window Sheet down the center of the card? Fun, huh? :) Here's a closer look at the sentiment...
So anyway, thanks for stopping by today, and I'm super sorry about the lack of video again. And make sure you visit Catherine and Cathy Create to check out the other DT members' projects - trust me, they're good! Then link up your chevron project for a chance to win some Stampin' Up! goodies! :)
