Monochrome Chevrons

by karen @ carefree creations - Monochromatic Chevrons

I combined a few challenges for this card. First, a new challenge: Colour Me, which has an Island Indigo monochromatic scheme. Next, Crazy for CAS is doing chevrons this week. And finally, Addicted to CAS is back with a Die-Cut code word.

Whew! Normally I wouldn’t combine so many, but this came together so well for me. Yay!

I started with a strip of white cardstock and sponged it with Island Indigo ink. I went lighter as I moved up the strip.

I die-cut the chevron panel and only punched out one strip of pieces (the others I kept in with a few pieces of tape).

For the sentiment strip, I stamped the sentiment over the open chevrons – it falls nicely in line color-wise. I also added some little arrows pointing to the sentiment, also with an ombre effect. The panel is popped up to add a bit of dimension.

Thanks for taking a peek!


Stamps: Circles & Diamonds (Lil Inkers);
