CAS on Sunday #52 - Chevrons

I love chevrons - I have a chevron embossing folder, chevron border stamps and a Recollections (Michaels) chevron stencil. I thought I'd try to create a card with the stencil. This is what I came up with.

 CAS on Sunday

 Theme: Chevrons

This is the stencil; I masked off the area using painters tape (taking a bit of the stickiness off the tape by sticking it a couple of times on my t-shirt)

 I used these distress inks and used daubers to randomly apply the colours
 I used the same distress inks to make this panel - put some ink on my teflon sheet, spritzed water and added the paper and "smooshed" the paper around to blend the inks

 Using these dies - Memory Box, Vivienne dies; cut the "whole" butterfly from the distress ink panel (above) and the "outline" butterfly from black cardstock.

Cut "thanks" using this SImon Says Stamp die from black cardstock.

Assemble the card. I used a thin black mat for the panel and adhered it to the card.
