Thanks ombre and chevron style!


Getting away from a holiday card for today's post.......don't worry, they will be back!
Ombre.......Chevron.  These are 2 things that are VERY popular in the papercrafting world right now. Just take a look at the Pinterest boards......HERE.  Combining these two for a die?  Yes....Please!

There is a fabulous die from Frantic Stamper called Ombre Chevron Card Panel.  This is one die that you will be seeing me use a lot in the coming months.  

I started by diecutting an Ombre Chevron Card Panel and using it as a stencil to sponge on various colors of Distress Inks onto a card panel.  A trimmed piece of vellum was adhered over the sponged panel to "soften" the chevrons and also made my diecut Large Thanks word die really stand out.  The last detail was adding in a diecut rectangle frame to sort of make this look like a shadow box type of card.  

Thanks

Here are the 2 dies I've used to make my card:


Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!
