I've been tossing this idea around for a while now. I wanted to use chevrons for the background of my card, but my original idea was to try to emboss the chevrons. Well, that didn't work out, so I thought some more and came up with this card:
I really like how it turned out. I took some pictures as I was working on the card, so I can explain how I did it.
I used the mini chevron die from My Favorite Things. I cut out quite a few of the chevrons and made a small template for myself. Here's a picture of it:
I glued each strip to a scrap piece of paper, so that they would hold in place. Then I slipped my piece of white cardstock underneath and began to ink the cardstock. I used 3 TH distress inks. Here's what the background piece looked after inking:
Then I sprayed it with iridescent gold glimmer mist to give it a bit of a sparkle. Next I finished the card. I colored the MFT stamp called Blessed Mouse with my copics. I also used another set of die-namics from MFT called mini wavy pennants. Add a little bit of twine and some rhinestones, and.......Voila!
Thanks for stopping by.
