Chevron Birthday


I've been getting dirty with Distress Inks again.  The challenge at Lawnscaping is to use distress products or techniques.


And my inspiration has come from this card by Jennifer Maguire, this month's muse at CASE Study:


I squished some Distress Inks onto a craft sheet then misted with water, and basically worked my way through them with the chevron stamp, picking up a little colour from the neighbouring colour.  I like the grungy effect.  Then I cut the birthday die out, layered the piece onto black card and stamped a small "happy" and added three sequins.

Lawn Fawn: Chevron Backdrops
Waltzingmouse Stamps: Say It Loud
Memory Box: Birthday Die
Distress Inks: Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, Shabby Shutters, Peacock Feathers, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass, Dusty Concord
