I was so happy to see that our new challenge at Seize The Birthday Challenge has a Toppings option to use CHEVRONS!
Remember that the Topping is optional, so if you're not in a Toppings mood, the choice is yours! An "Anything Goes" Birthday is just fine. We just hope you'll play along!
There are so many directions to go, using chevrons. So I looked to Pinterest for a few ideas...looking for something a little out of the ordinary. THIS fascinating iPhone case was the photo that kept pulling my back. Go ahead. Click over and take a look. Just promise you'll come right back!
Here's my take on a fun chevron birthday card. Sponging and stamping!
I'm very pleased with the final results. But, I have to admit...this card took sooooo long to create. I had sponged the panel and started to create chevrons with a handmade stencil. Well, I'll spare you the details. But, that homemade stencil was NOT the way to go! I sponged a new panel and started over, using this distressed chevron stamp from Close To My Heart. Much better results. Trust me!
I hope you'll join me and my super-talented team mates at Seize The Birthday for this chevron "Toppings" challenge. I can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks for stopping by!
