Chevrons Galore


The new challenge on the block blog is FUSION, a two-part challenge where you can follow a sketch or an inspiration photo, or both.

I fused Jackie's sketch, and Lesley's photo inspiration (the flowers, but not the colours).

For the colour scheme, I used this week's colour challenge from Less Is More,
 LIME & BLACK

And the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays this week is chevrons and flowers.


The chevron stamp is from Lawn Fawn, sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  Rolled flower die is from Little Claire.  I added pearls to the centres of the flowers, which you can just about see in this close-up.
